  • We have been here several times with kids 4 and under. It is enough excitement and totally walkable. Not an overwhelming outing.  more »
  • Great zoo animals well taken care of and nice size areas for them to live very clean good price worth your time to go see  more »
  • Always great! They do a wonderful job of keeping the zoo clean for both people and animals. It's never overly crowded. There's a good mix of different animals. It takes us about 2 hours to walk around the whole zoo, which in my mind is perfect. We would choose this zoo over any other in the area, hands down.
  • Nice quiet zoo. It's small walk through zoo with a gift shop. Price is very good and has a small petting zoo with goats and pigs. Took bout hour to explore all of it. Afterwards we took the kid to the park for free.
