  • I saw a review on yelp or something that said "it's the largest small zoo ever" or something like that, the person was right! You know it's small going in but it doesn't feel small when you go around. They've They've maximized their space and put of a lot of interesting creatures in there. Even though some were asleep it was very cool to see some things I've never seen before...and I've been to plenty of zoos in my lifetime. They've got animals from a lot of different continents - North and South America, Africa, and Asia...can't recall if they've got from Europe and Australia. Definitely none from Antarctica so no penguins or anything like that but don't worry, you don't miss them! They also have a nice outdoor space, a lot of flowers and trees, it feels like you're walking through a park. I really loved this visit! Also, the price is fantastic! $10 adults, $6 kids! Oh, very important to note - entrance is on clove road not on Broadway!
  • The zoo is really lovely, kids enjoyed it so much. From the reviews, I saw a lot of people mentioned it’s very small, so didn’t expect much, but it’s actually much better than I thought. It’s not big, but organized very well. The people work here are so nice, appreciate it! I highly recommend it!
