Frank Buck Zoo reviews
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.
