This zoo is fantastic for parents and grandparents to take their young children and grandchildren. The young volunteers are obviously receiving a wonderful education and do a great job. We had a wonderful time.

There's a small area inside the zoo to eat where you can bring your own food. There is more room immediately outside the zoo near the splash pad/playground as well.
