    We had a BLAST coming to this zoo. The animals were very active, and most of the zoo is shaded. You can get up and close, not like your larger zoos. It took us about an hour and a half to do the whole...  more »

    What a fun little place to happen upon. We passed by here on our way to Bronner's and decided to stop on the way back. We had such a great time. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, the animals were active and lively, and we had a really enjoyable time. I would definitely come back. I loved all the big cats!

    I had an amazing time, and will definitely be visiting this zoo again in the future. Animals were extremely friendly and well kept. The staff is friendly and they do a great job taking care of the animals to make sure they are comfortable and happy. Great zoo!

    I love this zoo. The staff are very caring and work hard to keep all the animals happy. Most of the animals a rescued from photographers or people who no longer would care for them. Staff always curtious and will tell you the back stories of the animals that care for. Animals there recognize the staff and always have a friendly greeting for each staff member.
