  • Lots of activities for families, the exhibits are well kept, there's a quiet room/ nursing mothers quarters/ adult changing station. Lots of options as far as food and snacks. Zoo allows you to bring in your own food and drinks inside so that saves quite a bit. Gift shop is pretty great too, but very pricey.
  • Reasonably priced and very family friendly. There are lots of restrooms and trash/recycling bins throughout so the zoo stays clean. There are many smaller areas for kids to play and climb between exhibits in addition to the larger playground. There is a small building solely for families to use for a quiet area and for nursing mothers. You can bring in your own food and drink to keep cost down. The staff was friendly, and the petting zoo had employees sweeping up poop as it happened so it was also very clean.
  • A great place to go with family or friends! Not expensive for a day of fun. Very impressed with the animal variety as well as clean grounds and friendly staff! Had a petting zoo and they’re currently remodeling a new addition, so I can’t wait to return! The animals are well cared for and overall a great place with a great price for a day of fun.
  • My family and I absolutely love coming here! I have a 2 year old with high functioning autism and they offer a "quiet room" and it is wonderful! There is something for everyone. The overall cost is very reasonable also. They usually have special events going on throughout the year as well.
  • I love this zoo! There are some zoos that are so spread out you just can't walk it all in one day. This zoo has all the animals other zoos have but its laid out in such a way that there isn't quite as much walking. There are llaenty of buildings to get in out of the sun and there's a huge playground. There's a petting zoo, a train, and a really nice merry go round. I go to this zoo all the time and would recommend it to anyone.
