  • Great place to bring the family! Huge playground. Zoo is an admission fee, but well worth the price. Many fun things for kids and parents to see. Feed the ducks and swing on the big green swings.... A wonderful family day for all!
  • For a $10/ticket zoo, this is a very good deal. It will be even better late in summer 2017 when their newly-renovated exhibits are open. Check out the park while you're here too, but use the zoo bathrooms before you leave! There doesn't seem to be more than one port-a-potty in the whole rest of the park as far as restrooms are concerned!
  • Just a hidden gem, a take everybody should see. Just the right size for young family's. Very kid friendly not a lot of walking between animals
  • Had a fantastic time at the Easter celebration. The staff was friendly and engaging. We enjoyed brunch and had a lot of fun meeting some of the animals up close. Great little family zoo!
  • This zoo is a nice size for little ones under 5. They can walk around all over. They allow outside food inside just not in cafe area. My kids love this place and they really feel like it's "their" zoo.
