  • We had a couple of hours before we needed to get on the road so we decided to take a look at this zoo. It featured a carousel in the promotional materials, but it was under renovation during our visit...  more »

  • What an amazing experience! I went with a kindergarten class in a field trip. So often as a child your told not to touch and to restrain yourself. The Discovery center allows kids to explore, touch and experience everything. I was just as enthusiastic as the kids. The story garden, the zoo and the Discovery center were all amazing. I highly recommend!!!
  • It's a great little zoo with different animals. I love how close you can get to the animals as well. For example, the leopard and you could be very close with just the plexiglass between. The leopard was very playful. I got quite a few good pictures there.
  • Outstanding zoo and discovery center. Visited with my grandson's class. We were impressed by the beauty of the zoo, its cleanliness, and its educational aspects. A wonderful visit and learning experience.
  • Went there for a wildlife experience with a sloth and a Porcupine. It was fun and informative. They do have this one on one with a couple of the other animals. You do have to book this in advance but it was worth the money.
  • Nice little trip. Takes about 1hr half to walk. Little ones liked it.
