Feeding Ducks/Birds/Animals?

Are there any places (pond/lake/etc) where people can feed the ducks/geese etc? Like a public park with a pond or lake that would reliably have some birds?

If I remember correctly we used to be able to feed the birds and fish at Waller Mill, but that is no longer an option.

What about any zoos/etc with petting zoos where they sell food for their animals?

Thanks in advance.

The Peninsula SPCA petting zoo would make for a fun visit. From their website:

"The animals are set up in an attractive fenced-in area where children and adults can come together to meet, pet, talk to, and even feed the animals a few treats."

I miss taking the kids to feed the ducks. But most parks prohibit feeding the wild ducks and geese because they've been known to get used to handouts and became pretty aggressive (which can get scary when you have small children).
