  • We paid $5 admission and couldn't even find the zoo. I imagine that if we would have been given a map of the park we would have found the Zoo but even after following the signs that pointed towards th...  more »
  • One sad lonely little monkey sitting all alone. NO spider monkeys at least none we saw and we were there over 2 hours. What I like about this zoo is the hands on experience kids and adults get to have...  more »
  • This park is a great place for families. I definitely recommend it for a fun day at the park. It is family friendly, and a fun place to get away!!!  more »

  • This is a cute little zoo. It's fun to feed and pet the animals in the central area. Be sure to check the website before you go to make sure it's open- the zoo closes for the winter. I couldn't figure out how to indicate this in the Google Maps entry. :(
  • Good variety. Healthy animals. Glad to pay the admission fee.
  • A really nice zoo. Not too large but you can easily spend an hour or two seeing all the exhibits. Very much enjoyed the parrots that greeted us with a hello and a "come here". Many animals to amuse kids and adults alike.
  • Do NOT have a party here for your kid. Worse experience I ever had in all my years as a parent paying for a party. 1. They had one host for two parties 2. They rushed me out half an hour before my party ended cause of rain, it was raining the WHOLE party and they want you to pay in full while your party is going on 3. We barely saw the host only when she showed the kids animals and at the end. 4. They take forever to answer phone calls and emails 5. They charge you for guests you did not have 6. Why would they charge you for babies under 1 year OLD 7. Manager tells you the day of party she will issue a partial refund for party and insults you with 25.00 refund and free passes and last 8. I had asked for drinks and cups when we were doing the cake, she brings me drinks without cups...I told her I no longer wanted the drinks and she says do not worry about it, got the cups at the END of my party after everyone had already ate then Manager says the drinks was part of my refund, along with two extra guests which amounts up to 25.00 In all my years as a Manager, I would not ever treated my customers like that. I always made sure they were happy and not insult them. I decline her free passes as she thinks this is my son's first trip there. No it is not. My son has frequent that zoo YEARLY since he was a baby....I decline free passes cuz I felt insulted by her offer on a refund. Never again will I step foot in this zoo and will I recommend to all my family and friends to ever go here. This manager needs to get her act together, make sure her staff are promptly replying to all customers, make sure she has enough staff to cover the parties, and honor her end.
  • Great open space, playground, picnic area, water park and pool for the summer that locals swarm to. Zoo is cute. Nestled in the back of park with extra admission from park entrance fee.
