  • I like to see the animals. But I do NOT like to see things like lions pacing back and forth from boredom. If you are going to force animals to live in captivity, their habitats should be more natural....  more »

  • The zoo itself isn't the best, but it's a great place to take my kids. There's tons of shade, you can get really close to the animals, and it's never crowded. The splash pad is so fun in the summer, and the train and carousel are always a hit with my kiddos.
  • Great place to take the family! All of my kids always have a blast! The people there are very friendly and helpful!
  • It was OK, we drove a few hours to get there. Several things were shut down, including exhibits and the train. It was a little disappointing. My kids still enjoyed it though.
  • Fun place for kids. Several new attractions coming in 2017. Location isn't the best but never had any problems here. Great memories made here.
  • Good for kids ..But to many closed Cage's.. only seen a few Animals today ... still a great place to have a shaded walking path..
