  • Great way to spend a summer afternoon. Fun for young children but also for adults. A great space to walk around and enjoy the weather. The animals are basic farms animals and i couldn’t really see any of the birds. Side note: I would come around 4 pm next time because it was blisteringly hot from 1-3pm. But there is not much crowd around that time too.
  • This was such a nice little zoo walk. The zoo is small and cozy. Just the right size for a young family to take an outing to for a quiet time with some animals. The exhibits are nice and there is a barn full of animals to enjoy. The light at Christmas are a lot of fun to see too.
