  • Wonderful zoo. Admission is free (but PLEASE PLEASE leave a donation). The layout is nice, the boardwalk type path from area to area is cool. The animals are very well cared for. You can tell their keepers love them very much. I visit a few times a year, and highly recommend it to everyone. Go and spend a day with the animals, it's relaxing and fun. Don't forget to leave a donation in the bucket, that's how the place stays open and able to care for their animals.
  • This is a beautiful zoo. The atmosphere is so nice here. There's peacocks everywhere you look! The monkeys are super cool to see. They have an awesome tree top climbing experience for all ages too. They also have a play ground for the kids outside of the zoo. It's a great family day out! We always enjoy our time here☺
