Quite kid friendly. Animals treated quite well. Very good community outreach. Always an enjoyable visit with interesting and interactive programs. more »
Having just moved from a big city, I was rather skeptical of a small town zoo that was also free. However, my toddler and I have been twice in a row this week, and he loves this zoo maybe more than the big city one. Very well done, personable staff, fun little signs to learn from, interactive exhibits, and even a splash pad. We usually spend about 3 hours here.
Adorable, free zoo!! Highly recommend. There are very fun and entertaining exhibits like a petting zoo area, butterfly garden, and a kangaroo walk. The place is very clean and well taken care of. This is a great time both for children and the adults. The entire place will take you between 1 and 2 hours to enjoy.
