I felt for a really small zoo that they had a good selectin of animals for the kids to experience! Even a small barn with a petting zoo. My grand daughter loved it!

For it being a free zoo its a nice place, there are probably roughly about 20 different animals. The nicest thing about the zoo is they offer different activities for young children during the summer months. Their gardens are also beautiful to walk through.

This was a great place to visit with our grandkids. There is also a park near by for them to play and have a picnic lunch.

Glorious display of botanical collection. Practically an arboretum. Tidy, clean, no predators. Herbivores. Kid friendly with some exotics. So the day will not be wasted for the child...the Wisconsin ornamental gardener will feel at home and take a rich eyeful.

Small with very few animals, the best thing to see is the black swan. We usually take a bike ride with our kids down the bike path then stop to see the animals, our kids enjoy feeding the goats.
