From a Kewaunee County news release

It’s construction season at Bruemmer Park Zoo in Kewaunee. The Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation Department is in the process of making room for potential new exhibits and creating additional green space for picnics and events.

In recent weeks the old bear pen was demolished and the worn steps that connected the lower and upper portions of the zoo have been removed, due to safety concerns.

Another project set to begin soon is a new bobcat exhibit. This summer, “Baxter” and “Bella” will be moved into a much larger home with new fencing thanks to donations made to The Zoological Society of Kewaunee County.

Meanwhile, the park’s Nigerian dwarf goats, “Mr. Nibbles” and “Brick,” will soon be introduced to some new playmates. Two more Nigerian dwarf goats are expected to their playground later this month.

But, that’s not all that’s happening at Bruemmer Park Zoo located at E4280 County Road F, west of Kewaunee.

Visitors will also notice a new entrance sign in near future. The Zoological Society is seeking sponsors to help rebuild the sign that came down in March due to high winds. If you’re interested in this project, email

“This is one of our most popular parks, so it’s important to us that we keep it well maintained,” said Dave Myers, Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation director.
