  • Zoo is always clean. Animals are very healthy and taken care of. The people that take care of them really love them. All staff are friendly and ready to assist visitors any way they can. One of the best zoo's I have been to.
  • We enjoy having a zoo close by that we can visit frequently. They do a great job offering classes and camps for kids. I just wish it was bigger or had more than one teeny tiny aquarium.
  • Very cute zoo. It's small, so two hours is plenty of time to see everything. Good for little kids who get tired of walking.
  • The staff is amazing, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The zoo is small enough to walk through in under two hours, but has enough animals to keep you coming back. It also has a train and carousel for everyone. The train has a special car for wheelchairs so everyone can ride. They also hold special events throughout the year, for adults and kids and is one of the most affordable zoos in our area.
  • It's small but amazing. You really get close and can see everything. It's refreshing from the huge flashy zoos.
