Niabi Express

Anyone who has visited the Zoo knows that the Niabi Express is a key feature of the park! Most of you may have ridden the train a time or two, when you were little, or when you had your children or now that you have grand children or just because! It is a memory that you remember! Now and then, upkeep or renewal are a necessary result of the continual use...after all it's a machine. Niabi Zoo Foundation is ready to help support what the Zoo needs to keep this treasure running.
