Great place to take family. My husband and I took our niece and nephew to the zoo. They loved learning about the different monkeys and taking pictures along the way.

We had a fabulous time visiting the zoo. It was a perfect size and they had lots of activities throughout the day. The grounds and animals are very well kept. Would def visit again when we are in the area!!

Visited here with my Niece (5years) and Nephew (2years) and had a wonderful day of exploring. This zoo is unique as all of the animals have been rescued and are given a home because they will not adapt to their natural environment. You can tell...More

Two hours. The food is actually good if you want to stay a little longer. Adding the little train ride and the Merry go round and the giraffe feeding will take more time
