This place was small but had plenty of animals. We went early in the morning which I wouldn't recommend as many of the animals wasn't out yet as they hadn't opened their doors to let them out. We had to stay longer than we wanted to see all the animals. And it was a blistering hot day. Which for us... More

Most of the animals were out and there were very little people. I highly recommend taking the train around the park, it is great fun! We visited and attended... More

Great place for family to visit . They celebrate Christmas with an amazing wild lights display. They have a small train that travels the perimeter of the park for your viewing interest. The have a small eating area and a nice souvenir shop.

We took our infant son for his first time at a "zoo" and we really lucked out. Most of the animals were out and because it had been raining most of the day, there were very little people. We did come late in the day so we ended up getting followed out by staff so they could close. I highly... More

We visited and attended many of the educational talks including bird of prey show, grizzly bear, and black bear. The girls there have a lot of knowledge about their animals. Most of the animals are orphaned or injured, so normally would be in the wild if not for their predicaments. Lots of neat things to look at, but the place... More

We picked a cooler, cloudy day to visit the park as at this time of year our weather can get extremely hot. I guess the animals liked the cooler weather as wel because most of them were out of the pens & wandering around. Including the twin grizzlies! The raptor show was fantastic and very well presented.
