Capron Park Zoo reviews
A small but cool zoo. The day we went there were a lot of animals not there, this zoo is for rehabbing animals though so not really for profit (I believe). Very cool for a day trip with the kids. more »
This is a great zoo to take children of every age. Great layout, easy to see the animals, and of course, the kids favorite, the splash pad. Great place to spend a few hours or relaxing day. more »
Definitely a small zoo and saw everything in one morning (coming from NC where our zoo is 500 acres- a different story ☺️) but we really enjoyed it! Staff was friendly and we got discounted admission through reciprocity with our NC zoo membership. It was quiet, no real crowds, plenty of animals to see. The lioness was roaring a lot which the kids loved (although she almost seemed disturbed by how vocal she was- not an animal behavior expert though!). We didn't take advantage of the splash pad but it appears very popular for a hot day! The playground outside the entrance was a nice bonus.
Great little zoo! I was surprised to see 3 big Lions and they had my favorite a Red Panda that was very active. Kids under 2 are Free and there is a nice playground right outside.
