No Animals at the Petting Zoo? Because it’s a “Real Truck” Petting Zoo!

Confused? A petting zoo without animals?

That’s right, no animals, but Arlington’s Central Library knows kids and the many interests and stages they experience. Like the love of BIG vehicles.

They’ve gathered a lot  filled with the “real” BIG TRUCKS of Arlington. Cool work vehicles including trucks for construction, fire and rescue, trash pick-up, police cars, a commuter bus and more! Find out how these vehicles get the job done.


Expected in the “Zoo”:

  • A fire engine from the Arlington Fire Department
  • A street sweeper, garbage truck and dump truck from the Arlington County Department of Environmental Services
  • A concrete mixer from Vulcan Materials
  • A gas operations vehicle from Washington Gas
  • Arlington Transit’s Art on the ART Bus
  • And a motorcycle and police cruiser from the Arlington Police Department

* Depending on availability, they may also have an ambulance and ladder truck, as well as other large construction vehicles.

This Saturday, May 21, 9 a.m. – 11 a.m
Central Library East Parking Lot (near tennis courts)
1015 N. Quincy St., Arlington, Va.
