  • New playground. Swings for 6 month old. 10 year old played on monkey bars and ropes. The zoo is full of many animals and interact with some animals.  more »
  • This was a very nice small zoo. We were there on a hot day and some of the animals were hiding in the shade. The Butterfly House was very nice.  more »

  • My family and I have so much fun here. We bought a family pass for the season very happy we did. Its a cute zoo my kids love it so much. 😊❤🌈
  • Cool little zoo. When we went, a lot of the areas were closed off. Decent prices. Neat gift shop.
  • Not much too see or do couldnt see most animals the best part were the otters they we out playing. Staff was very welcoming just not the best place.
  • Good way to spend a lazy afternoon. The otters were great fun to watch.
  • I went there and they only had like 4 animals and they weren't even active. I've never been such a small zoo before. I didn't even stay 30 mins. That's how quick it takes to look at all the animals. I understand that some animals can't stand the cold but it shouldn't be like that.
