Good Zoo and Benedum Theater
The Good Zoo at Oglebay Resort & Conference Center has been a crown jewel of the Ohio Valley for over 30 years. We are pleased to support its mission through the first ever Good Zoo Brew.
Over 50 species of animals many rare or endangered, reside within the 30-acre Good Zoo.The zoo was dedicated in memory of seven-year old Philip Mayer Good in 1977 and continues to thrive through the support of local residents. Our mission is to educate our visitors regarding natural and physical sciences and to promote conservation.
Newer exhibits include the Outback Exhibit and Lorikeet Landing. Other features include African wild dogs, meerkats, spectacled bears, lemurs, ocelot, red pandas, otters and the Wonders of the Wetlands area where visitors can observe a crane, bald eagles and various other plants and animals that call these fragile areas home. The historic C.P. Huntington Train Ride takes visitors on a one and a half mile journey through the zoo. The red barn is filled with friendly domestic animals such as llamas, pigs, goats and donkeys.
The zoo offers a variety of camps and programs for children of all ages as well as outreach programs with area schools and groups. There are also programs for adults including the West Virginia Master Naturalist program.
