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 »
This is a really wonderful zoo. You can get really close to the animal which appear to be well cared for. The staff was super friendly and knowledable. Great for children. 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
Small, only took one and a half hours to do everything. However, there were several close encounters....
Great place to go with family. Loved the budgie house
