Library Loan Program

Georgia State Parks Library Loan Program Georgians with public library cards can check out a Georgia State Park “ParkPass” and Historic Site Pass—much like checking out a book.

The ParkPass exempts you from paying the daily $5 parking fee at state parks, and the Historic Sites Family Pass exempts up to 4 visitors from admission fees to state historic sites operated by Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites.

Plan because supplies are limited.

Noah’s Ark is a 250-acre sanctuary for abused, unwanted and neglected animals. A beautiful “park like” setting with paved pathways to bring your family and enjoy an afternoon out. We have a beautiful picnic area and playground. Wear your walking shoes, pack a lunch and come spend the day with us!

Noah’s Ark never charges admission to come and see the animals, however we do accept and appreciate donations to help feed and care for the animals.
