  • This place is amazing, perfect place to have a birthday. Me and my family had a great time, and the zoo was amazing, all different types of animals from turtles to camels, wolf's, and Coyote's armadillos kangaroos lemurs little tiny monkeys horses goats chicken snakes lizards, and they have a few big cats lol. It's a beautiful park with plenty of things to do. And just to remind people the front main entrance on. Sumner Ave is closed for construction.
  • This zoo had it all! They presently have an exposition on Australia. My grandsons saw a hopping kangaroo as well as many other wonderful animal of different species. When we were finished seeing the animals, my 3 year rode a small train while the 5 year old played on the nearby playground. After that we enjoyed watching them play at the city sponsored water park just a bit away on the same grounds. It was a wonderful day for all of us!
