  • We enjoyed our annual trek to Hemker Zoo even though the weather was less than ideal. The grounds are clean and kid-friendly. Animals are apparently well cared for. Staff is pleasant.  more »

  • I wasn't particularly impressed by this zoo—while they do have a lot of animals, and they have some cool things (like the parakeet feeding area), a lot of the animals seemed quite out of sorts, their cages were too small, they'd worn tracks around the edges from pacing, they seemed dirty and uncared for. In a zoo, the first thing I look to see is that the animals seem happy, and I just didn't feel that that was true here.
  • Nice family zoo! You can get close to the animals. Great for little kids.
  • Great selection of all kind of animals. Toucan even feed the penguins. Call for more details

  • Great place to go with family. Loved the budgie house
