  • Lots to do. Can feed several of the animals & there is a petting area too. Picnic tables & we took our lunch. 
  • Took our 3 year old grandson. He was excited about seeing the animals. He had a blast. I would recommend buying more than one bird stick to feed the parakeets, that was his favorite part. 
  • This is one of the neatest experiences you can have if you or your kids love animals. It is inexpensive and you are basically interacting with nearly all of the animals. For $1, you get a large bag of...  read more »
  • I never usally leave reviews but felt like I needed to today... I have brought my kids to this park many times.. today I paid over 40 bucks to get in... usally the animals look well taken care of but today was hot and muddy. The animals inside the big red barn didn't have any water. I was only in the barn for about 15 min and was sweating. These poor critters were prolly just dying for a cool drink. I looked at every single watering pan in the goats and donkeys pin and every single one of them was dry and looked to be dry for a very long time.... as we walked out the barn there was animals that was standing in knee deep mud. There was also a pony laying in mud looking misarable. Thankfully the deer had a stream running thru their fenced in area. I was just really sad to see the animals in these conditions. If u charge that much then please use the money to take better care of the poor critters!!
  • It was fun! The animals seemed well cared for and I enjoyed feeding them! Thanks for the memorable time!
  • I took my grandchildren and we had a blast! I especially liked feeding the parakeets.
  • Had a great time enjoyed the beautiful weather and the animals.
  • We went to Lazy L Safari Park August 4th, 2012 with 5 children. We are a homeschool group and expected to have a good time looking at animals. We arrived early and was welcomed into the park. We purchased parakeet feed and went around the grounds. The children had a wonderful time. They enjoyed learning about all the different animals and pet many of them. One of the little donkeys followed the eldest child around and brayed whenever she walked away from him. She couldn't get over how adorable this little donkey was. Most of the animals are very accustomed to people and children. They are very friendly and curious about people. All of the cages were clean, well maintained, and safe. The parrots will say "hello" if you say "hello" to them. The parakeet jungle is a ton of fun. If you have feed sticks the little birds will land right on you. Most of the children liked this, though some were afraid of the tiny little things. I didn't expect them to be afraid so keep that in mind. The petting zoo is filled with cute little goats that you can feed with bags of feed supplied at the gift shop. The feed is only a dollar a bag. The kids love feeding the animals. My children fed some of the deer and the donkey too of course. Overall, they don't make parks like this anymore. If you have the chance to go and pass it up, it really is a crying shame. It's only 5 dollars to get in per person. You can not find many other venues that have such a diverse selection of animals, that costs 5 dollars per person.
