York’s Wild Kingdom, the iconic wildlife and amusement park in York Beach, Maine, is for sale for $14.2 million, although the owner said he’s not in any particular rush to sell.


The 58.4-acre property went on the market in late February. The property abuts Route 1 on one end and Railroad Avenue in downtown York Beach on the other.


The property comes on the market at an interesting time. Just this past week, the town sent out a request for quotations, seeking an economic development consultant to work on the town’s Green Enterprise Zone, a 300-acre area that stretches from the town-owned land surrounding Short Sands Road, the new connector road to the beach, to almost Cape Neddick Road. York’s Wild Kingdom property is included in this zone.


Co-owner Joe Barberi of York said the park will open on Memorial Day weekend. “We are certainly opening this year. I plan to open next year, and the year after that.” Barberi said that it’s all systems go for the 2019 opening: “For now, it’s business as usual.”
