Spring has always been the season of new growth, birth and rebirth. There's a reason why we obsess over gorgeous blooming flower farms, Easter eggs and bunnies! This spring, you have to visit this spot in Calgary where you can actually meet tiny baby kangaroos.
Cobb's Adventure Park in Calgary has a kangaroo petting zoo that's recently welcomed new additions to their family! You can meet with baby kangaroos and even cuddle them as they're bundled in make-shift pouches. This seriously adorable activity has to be on your spring bucket list!
These kangaroos are actually Bennett's wallabies. Even though they were born in Canada, the breed is originally from Tasmania. Their big feet, little front paws and adorable faces make them actually irresistible.
There's more to check out here than just the adorable kangaroos. There are lots of family-friendly rides, games and activities like archery tag, black light minigolf, a climbing wall and more. The main attraction has got to be the kangaroo petting zoo. If you love adorable animals and can't get to Australia this spring to cuddle baby roos, then this is the next best thing!
You can visit the kangaroos at Cobb's Adventure Park in Calgary, Alberta. Admission is $18. There will be a special 'Meet the Baby Roos!' event from 11 AM to 3 PM over two weekends in May. You can check it out on Saturday, May 18 to Monday, May 20 and the following weekend on Saturday, May 15 and Sunday, May 16. Check out their website for full details on their opening hours and to learn more.
