Thanks to a gift from Walt Disney 40 years ago, there are American Bison (buffalo) in the park. At the present time there are 9 of them, two of which are expecting calves. The last remaining bison from Disney's gift died in 1994.

To read more about Walt Disney's donation of bison to the Wm. S. Hart Park see

The bison are routinely traded for others from ranches and preserves, in order to prevent inbreeding. One calf was born here, in June of 2001. Her name is June Dakota. And in April of this year, another was born -- named April!
In addition to the bison roaming the hills of the 265 acre park, there are also other animals. At the present time, there are goats, wild boar, horses, a cow, a deer and several ducks, chickens, etc.
