  • Our family was back in town due to a funeral and needed some time to do something different. What a great place to take kids! Must see  more »
  • It has well, animals. Maybe 5 or so. It has a kids playground. It's nonthing like it used to be. No rides to pay to ride anymore. Swimming area. Not really worth the visit.  more »
  • The zoo could be larger for the size of Lafayette but I go to remember when I was a kid and it felt so much bigger then.  more »

  • Free parking, free admission. Employees very engaging of guests. Not a huge zoo but enough to keep the kids busy and entertained. Can't go wrong with a visit here. Will definitely visit again.
  • This is an amazing little Park and zoo and IT'S FREE!!!!!! This is a great place to take the kids almost anytime. Absolutely a must if are in the area regardless age.
  • This zoo, albeit small, is remarkably clean, well maintained and well staffed. The animals seem quite happy and cared for. It was worth the drive from INDY
  • Clean and well maintained zoo that's free... Unbeatable! Employees/voulenteers are friendly and attentive too! The petting zoo is my daughters favorite part, though...
  • Very kid friendly, lots of things to see and do. The farm animals were well taken care of, the zoo train ride was perfect for the kids and the little splash fountains were a lot of fun to play in and get wet in.
