Never crowded, peaceful, clean playgrounds and a great wild animal park. A true surprise for all who visit. Definitely worth a visit during the holidays to see the Festival of Lights via the park's train.

After driving from Clearwater Fl we found this park to let the kids have a run around before finding our motel. We would have like more time here but it was getting late in the day. The play ground was good and had a pleasant quiet atmosphere watching the squirrels hopping around. Didn't visit the wildlife park I reckon the... More

We went on a homeschool field trip to the animal park a the end of October. It is a small zoo but nicely shaded. The animals had good clean enclosures although a bit small for some of the them. We did find some garbage along the trail but it was mostly clean. The number of animals per enclosure was a... More

Thank you for your review! Sorry you were disappointed in our petting zoo, our first concern is keeping our animals and the public safe from each other. We make sure the animals can only be interacted with if they choose. They are all very friendly but they do have a mind of their own. Sometimes they are in the mood... More

The park has a "pocket" Zoo that is very good. You can get up close to the animals and feel completely safe. Alligators 4 to 5 feet below you, it is amazing what you see that close. The park has a campground, a great playground for under 10, off road bike trails, a BMX park, a frisbee golf course. and... More

This place is okay for kids or family to enjoy the nature and animals. But we go there with friends, so there are not too many things to do.

It was a good few hour amusement. The place looked as if they havent mowed or did any upkeep in a couple of months or more. It wasnt all what we expected but we still enjoyed it. The price was very compatable for what we saw and did.

Thanks for the review! At over 800 acres we try our best to stay on top of mowing the grass, but it can be difficult during the wet months where the grass really starts to sprout! We hope you will visit again soon. More
