Living Treasures expands with new park in Grove City area

Keystone Safari opened earlier this month just outside of Grove City as an expansion of nearby Living Treasures in Lawrence County.

The new animal park is home to numerous species and their young including lions and a cub, 1-year-old hyenas and giraffes and reindeer and their calves.

The park has been in the works for about four years after the owners of Living Treasures in nearby New Castle determined more space was needed, according to a news release. Some of the animals at the New Castle location have moved to Keystone Safari’s 144-acre facility. Living Treasures in New Castle will remain open.

Indoor and outdoor exhibits and other seasonal offerings will be available through early January at the new park and then when the park reopens in the spring, according to the release. A zip-line adventure park will open in early spring and a safari bus ride is expected to be available this summer.

As many as 25 more employees could be hired between the spring and summer.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
