This zoo is smaller than some I have been to but well worth the visit. Very clean and well set up. Easy to get to, plenty of parking and close to other attractions.

It's not San Diego or London or even Chicago but for a smaller city it's a very nice facility. One of the best parts is the spacious park across from the entrance. The most important things is the that the kids really love it. One...More
