  • What a wonderful hidden gem! Great for young & old. Easy accessibility for folks with mobility issues. There are some hills and steep grades to maneuver. Great events too. Season passes are very reasonable in cost if you will be able to use them. I love this zoo as much as my kids!
  • Always wonderful. Not crazy over priced. Animals always out and moving, playing or sunbathing. Cute little playground and an otter slide..yup your kid slides through an otter enclosure as they swim around it. Kids loved it. Plenty of shaded spots. Great trip.
