  • Good place for kids. It is most all outdoors, so go when weather is nice. Good information on the animals with each exhibit 
  • Clean, thoughtfully organized learning and play place. Animals look healthy and well cared for in spacious enclosures. 
  • The wolves were howling the otter was playing the cats were prowling! Nice little zoo with nice enclosures. Nice paths/ trails. Plus a fun exploring park.
