  • We took a quick walk through this pretty little zoo on a Sunday morning after church. I particularly enjoyed that you had to walk a little bit through the woods from the parking lot to the entrance. I...  more »
  • This zoo has some great animals but is relatively small. The location and view are a large part of it's charm. A small, open air, train around the perimeter is fun and capitalizes in the small size an...  more »
  • It’s inexpensive to enter. To my relief it appears they treat all animals with dignity and respect while providing them with everything they need to live a full life. It was hot the day we visited but...  more »

  • It was alright.. wasnt much going on. Kinda small. Came at lunch hours which was my mistake.. all animals were sleeping. The view of the city along the side was a nice touch!
  • Kind of a one trick pony but my son loves it, every time we go. The train is fun, the snowleopards fighting was an awesome sight to see and there are plenty of picture opportunities. Jaxon, my son, also loves the playground and the gift shop. So make sure to not go in there unless you want to see how they make up the price of the reasonable tickets...
  • Really not worth the time or money. Very small. The animals seem well cared for and the grounds are clean.
  • A small zoo. Costs $9 per adult and less for children, seniors and the military. Contains about 35 exhibits, and all of the animals appear to be well cared for. I recommend spending a bit of time in the aviary myself. Overall, a good way to spend an hour or two.
  • Great little zoo. Explore park and the star are also great for kids of all ages. Hiking trials and a flower garden add to the charm of this attraction. The star and the park close at 11pm. Opens at 6am. Security on site.
