If you’re an animal lover, you likely know that The Highlands is a pet-friendly community. The good news is that our Overland Park apartments are near Kansas zoos and farms ideal for our residents who like a little more exotic animals. Both Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead and the Kansas City Zoo offer great online resources for connecting with your favorite animals.

Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead

You don’t have to have children of your own to enjoy the Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead‘s Facebook page. Through the page, you can take a virtual field trip, look at pictures of the animals and scenery, and enjoy updates and other fun stories. You can also share your own favorite memories from the farmstead.

Kansas City Zoo’s Website

The Kansas City Zoo’s website offers resources to read about the animals and learn about some of the exhibits and the zoo’s residents. Perhaps, though, the most interesting feature is their animal cams. Whether you love primates, polar bears, giraffes, or penguins, you can see your favorite zoo animals on camera. You can even enjoy the animal cams when the zoo is not open.

Kansas City Zoo’s YouTube Channel

If you love the Kansas City Zoo, you’ll also likely want to visit their YouTube channel. Through these fun videos, you can see your favorite zoo animals in unexpected places, such as the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts or the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. You can also enjoy videos about specific animals, including new additions to the zoo. Several of the zoo’s animal cams can also be enjoyed through their YouTube channel.

As you’re interacting with Kansas zoos and farms, order some takeout for an easy dinner. If you’re still looking for a great place to live, contact us. Our apartments in Overland Park offer pet-friendly floor plans, great amenities, and a convenient location.
