This is a great small zoo that has lots of alligators that are fed daily during the summer months. They have animals that you can pet and feed. It is great for taking little kids to.

Number one on Parkers wish for his birthday was to go here. No doubt he loved it and so did his 7-year-old sister. Safe for all of us and educational too.

We really enjoyed the park today.. visiting family and they took us here and my daughters had a blast. Favorites were the alligators and the little goats. Only advice I’d give is to make sure to keep their habitats a little cleaner for the animals.

Great for all ages. Have areas for birthday parties. Not just gators, but all types of critters. Decent food and cool atmosphere. Wait for warm weather to see the gators more active.

I've taken my grandchildren there on several occasions. The employees are very friendly and enjoy letting anyone hold or pet the animals. They have baby gators inside plus snakes, ferrets and other wild creatures. They have a gift shop, picnic area and a small play...More
