  • This is a great small city zoo. Have been here a couple of times. The animals look well cared for. There is usually a docent walking around and will answer questions. It is a great place to take children who want to see animals, but won't last at the bigger zoos.
  • This is fun and knowledgeable place to visit and bring kids. Couple hours and kids really enjoy it. Good variety of animals also I have a pretty good size. Then outside of the zoo they also have a playground and a flower garden. On a nice day you can bring the kids and have a picnic. I think there is sometimes a little shuttle/train that drives around starting at the building.
