The West Coast Game Park Safari is a walk-through safari park in Bandon, Oregon, United States. It opened in 1968,[1] and includes snow leopards, African lions, Bengal tigers, emu, capybara, and cougars.[3][5]

The park is a petting zoo and captive breeding program, including endangered species such as the snow leopard.[6] They sell and loan big cats to other parks and zoos.[6]

In 1985, Bob Tenney, the park owner, stated the game park received 60,000 visitors per year.[4]

Two American black bears from the game park were bought in 2001 and 2002 by Baylor University, whose mascot is the Baylor Bears.[7]
