  • The zoo was clean and the animals looked healthy. The price was reasonable too. Wish we could have seen the giraffe better  more »
  • Great zoo for families with younger children- under 7 or so. A good variety of animals. It was clean and the staff friendly. Good for a couple of hours.  more »
  • This is a nice little zoo. Not super crowded. A good size for young kids who tire out in big zoos. You can see everything in about 20 min if you're just strolling. Definitely buy the animal food to ma...  more »
  • Great for kids, lots of chances for them to feed goats, sheep, donkeys, fish, giraffe... They charge too much for entry. Reptile/bird house is nasty and stuffy. Many of the habitats need better care and a lot of cleaning. Too many of them are substandard. The new giraffe house was closed and also no feedings that day (or any day we visit). Bathrooms are disgusting. 4 stars only because my toddlers loved all the animals they could feed. 2 stars is more appropriate.
  • Perfect small zoo for younger children. For a small fee you can get food for some of the animals. Staff is very friendly and grounds are well kept. Picnic and playground area is perfect for taking lunch with you.
  • Very small but cute! I would pack a lunch as they don't have many food options. They have sort of like a school cafeteria snack stand
  • Once they finish up some of the work they're doing and get some bigger enclosures for some of their animals, this place will be incredible! As it stands now, our daughter had a blast feeding goats and watching bears. Check it out!
  • A great small zoo and remarkably clean considering the age and amount of animals they have. Also everyone was super nice.
