  • Nice family place. Seating throughout zoo. Concession, playground, petting zoo, gift shop, train rides (pretty short) and merry-go-round ($2) Clean.
  • Great place to bring younger kids. Has the right amount to keep them occupied
  • Nice little Zoo. Friendly staff. Boo at the Zoo is always a treat.

  • I love our zoo! The staff are amazing and there is almost always an animal encounter when we are there. My kids never get sick of going. The animals are so well taken care of!
