We really enjoy the variety of animals at the zoo. It is a small zoo so as my son is getting older it isn't quite as exciting for him. I think he would really enjoy the "summer helper" program that the zoo has. It's a...More

Went with my wife, daughter and grandchildren. Had a wonderful time. Large enough zoo to experience a large number of different animals. Nice little area to get a snack and cool down if it is warm out. Take the kids and have a wonderful day

This is a great zoo to see if you have a couple of spare hours- unlike larger zoos, it is convenient to visit if you have 1 to 2 hours to spare. Small and cozy, it is a lovely place to visit and seem some...More

We went with my 3 year old Godson this last summer - he had a BLAST. My 12 year old guest however was not impressed. With what basically amounts to farm animals plus a Red Panda it can be a little less that amazing, but...More
