The zoo was a great way to spend a few hours. The animals seem happy and content in their environment. It's not a huge zoo, but has a great variety of well kept animals!

What a surprise! We were very impressed with the zoo’s many species and how well maintained and pleasant the surroundings were. The keepers were very friendly and took time to talk with us about the animals. Great value for families. Highly recommended.

The price is very reasonable for a smaller zoo but they've done such a good job with this zoo. It's the perfect size to spend an hour or 2 just exploring and seeing lots of animals.

This is a quaint little zoo. Not too busy. The price is completely fair; only around $10 for adults. And most of the exhibits were surprisingly nice. They had the best collection of roaming Peacocks I’d seen, and they have the world’s most spoiled Red...More

The zoo is small but one of my favorites I've been to. Wasnt crowded and you could get close to the animals, they were right up next to the viewing area.
