  • Everything is well-maintained and clean. Recently visited with my grand babies. They loved it....plenty of shady areas to take a break and cool off. We had lunch and the service was wonderful. All of the park's employees were friendly and helpful. My girls so enjoyed their experience at the zoo!
  • Our entire family enjoyed the zoo- young and old! Lots of shady areas to stay cool, as well as some water fountains for the kids to play. Several play areas for the kids!! The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly - you can tell this place takes great care of the animals and their safety comes first. Highly recommended place to visit!
  • This is one of my favorite zoos!! I worked here as a young adult when the grounds were much more barren. So, happy to see how the foliage and exhibits have changed over time. Today's visit included zoo staff stationed at various exhibits providing samples and information about the animals. I really enjoyed revisiting here!!
  • There were more animals here than I expected. However, the most impressive thing was the play areas. There are 2 sets of playground equipment outside of the zoo with a pavilion and bathrooms. Then there is another set of playground equipment inside. The biggest downside of visiting was navigating the narrow parking area. Also it is very hilly and I think it would not be a good place to bring someone with limited mobility.
  • Good prices (12$) for a small zoo. Went in the cool of evening... Not all animals were really active but most were and nearly all the people were leaving so I had a nice quiet walk with my daughter. Overall a fun day.
