  • I would give it a 5 star for cleanliness and being friendly. Exhibits were about a 3 star, well kept but there were very few and a lot of animals were hidden. The giraffes and zebras , bison, chickens...  more »

  • Nice small zoo! We went on the first day of spring and thought we might miss a lot of animals. Although the giraffe and zebra were not out, we were able to enjoy most of the other animals. The kids were even able to feed the bison (for an additional fee) and it was definitely the highlight of the visit. We saw a lot of improvements taking place. We definitely want to visit in the summer to check out the carousel and train.
  • This is a great little zoo. Not too overwhelming that you feel like you have to spend all day there, but enough variety of animals to be interesting. We really enjoyed the opportunity to feed the animals. And the jaguar cubs were just too cute!
  • Very small zoo, playground is great, petting zoo area. My kids are older and more interested in the tree top adventures. The giraffe feeding was neat. Needs a little updating but great for the price.
  • Perfect size for little kids. Lots to do and see! We've been there twice with my 2 and 4 year old and we can't wait to go again.
  • It's a good children's playground. Small and manageable for a morning out. The zoo part is troubling. Many of the animals are sick (signs are posted that they are in veterinary care). The enclosures are very small (great to see the animals but sad for the animals themselves). The elmwood zoo is not cheap and is obviously investing that money in facilities improvements for visitors/kids. Sadly, the animals do not seem to be high on their priority list.
