This is ceetainly not a large zoo but the animals were active and looked well cared for. A great place for the younger children with play areas and activity centers. Several informative discussions about some of the animals with the zoo guides.

This small zoo is affordable and a great way to spend 3-4 hours. Parking is free, the animals seem well cared for, the shows are informative and there is a small stream that children can get wet in on a hot day! Construction is happening...More
