Free Open House at Maine Wildlife Park Friday

The weather looks like it will be clearing tomorrow for Friday evening; so spend the longest day of the year with us at the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray; and watch our wildlife have their dinner!

Feeding times for moose, lynx, foxes, cougars, vultures & bears will be posted for the evening.

If you’ve never visited the wildlife park in Gray, it’s a great opportunity to check us out and stroll around the scenic park on a long summer evening.

Rich in culture, ecology and history, the Maine Wildlife Park, Shaker Village, Poland Spring Inn and Resort, Poland Spring Preservation Society, Poland Spring Preservation Park, and the grounds of McLaughlin Garden truly are “The Gems of 26.”

Visitors are encouraged to go and experience the park, as well as five other unique sites — all less than an hour from each other on the picturesque Route 26 in Western Maine. Route 26 connects Western Maine to the rest of the State via Maine Turnpike’s exit 63 in Gray; meandering through gorgeous countryside and boasting culturally, historically, and ecologically significant attractions. Just thirty minutes north of Portland, a family can spend a day or several days visiting all six important and interesting destinations at very little expense – a true Maine value!
