  • Discovery center is a great place to take your kids and grandkids. There is a lot of interesting and fun things to do. We have been there three times this year,and had a great experience each and every time!
  • Enjoyed our visit. Nice to have an amenity like this close by. Don't expect big city zoo attractions but there are some good experiences to be had. Many of the animal attractions were closed or being refurbished when we visited which was disappointing. It's looking a little run down but work is in process. Kids loved the petting zoo. Membership is good value especially with the discounts you get.
  • This is a smaller zoo, but it is well kept and has a lot of nice animal exhibits. My favorite is the penguins. We like this zoo because it is inexpensive, has a lot of shade and nicely paved walking trails, and a picnic area. They sell a decent variety of food near the picnic area, or you can bring your own. My kids also love the carousel that is near the entrance.
  • Beautiful area! The gardens are pretty and full of gnomes! The animals seemed a little sad, for a lack of better description. But they did appear well cared for. It's not the biggest zoo and con be walked through in about am hours time. The gift shop was lacking. But we had a nice time and would return.
  • 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!!!
