The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden invites guests of all ages to see and experience the new BRICKLIVE™ Animal Paradise, an exciting exhibit of life-sized wildlife sculptures constructed from over two million toy bricks, and sponsored locally by Devon! Appearing in Oklahoma for the first time and exclusively at the OKC Zoo, BRICKLIVE will be on display throughout the Zoo’s lush, 6-acre pollinator garden located along the Lakeside. Discover an array of brick-built endangered species from around the world as you embark on this visual safari through BRICKLIVE. BRICKLIVE Animal Paradise is open to the public Saturday, May 7, through Sunday, October 30, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily.

BRICKLIVE is a one-of-a-kind exhibit designed to connect wildlife fans of all ages to many of the planet’s endangered animal species while “building” an appreciation for conservation and biodiversity. The exhibit features 45 stunning animal sculptures and four wildlife habitats including wildlands, snow and ice, ocean and jungle. Guests will encounter an imposing giraffe, a striking King Cobra, a proud African lion, a powerful rhinoceros and more. Educational graphics will be displayed by each animal sculpture sharing detailed information and facts about the species along with statistics about the sculpture including how many bricks it contains. 

“We’re thrilled to bring this awe-inspiring and educational experience to the Zoo,” said Dwight Lawson, OKC Zoo’s executive director/CEO. “Through innovation and creativity, BRICKLIVE emphasizes the importance of protecting and conserving our world’s vanishing wildlife and wild places a mission shared by the OKC Zoo.”

While on your BRICKLIVE adventure, visit the interactive toy brick area setup in the lower level of the Zoo’s aquatics building. Here young builders, 11 and under, can let their imagination run wild as they play with and use thousands of bricks to construct their own creations. Peruse the Zoo’s gift shop located near the play area for wild souvenirs. Discover a selection of brick building toys and gifts, apparel for both children and adults, plush, children’s books and more. The Zoo is also offering a BRICKLIVE Animal Paradise Birthday Package while the exhibit is open through October.
