Local Wildlife Park Aims To Promote Local And State Tourism

WYANDOTTE, Okla.–The Creation Safari Wildlife Park has a variety of animals for people from all over to see, contributing not just the local tourism, but tourism for the state as well.

“People come here that might not otherwise come to this area and then they see other things they would like to do,” said Tim Sappington, 

Sappington is the owner and director of the Creation Safari Wildlife Park in Wyandotte, Oklahoma, and says his park contributes to agrotourism in the sooner state.

“Agrotourism is where people take. their family farm and they basically open it up to the public to educate the public about what they do.”

They’ve only been open to the public for about seven weeks, and have seen people come in from all over Oklahoma and the Four-States.

“We have people as far as 4 hours away already drive here.  a lot of people within an hour to two hours away. and then of course our local people.”

Sappington says he hopes to see his wildlife park bring more attention to Ottawa County and Wyandotte.

“Because, you know, people come here that might not otherwise come to this area and then they see other things they would like to do.”

The park has a variety of wildlife, that’s hard to come by in most parts of the state. Sappington says he thinks it’s important for people in the community to get to experience something like this.

“it’s been amazing. we have had an overwhelming response from the community. Lots of great reviews from everybody that’s been here, it’s been amazing…I think it’s a needed thing for our community.”

Most importantly, Sappington says he just hopes to share his family’s dedication and interest in animals with anyone interested in checking it out.
