I have a 4 year old and a two month old and I've taken them both to Capron Park Zoo twice and had a pleasant experience both times. It's easy to find and parking is free and abundant. Outside of the grounds is a beautiful wooded area with a pavilion, scattered picnic tables and a great playground. You can easily... More

We visited this park and zoo this month for a day trip with our grandson. The park was easy to find, clean, well-appointed and fun. There are not a lot of animals, but the exhibits are clean and very interesting. There is a splash pad for the kids to play in, as well as a large playground outside the zoo... More

This zoo is perfect if you are looking for a place to bring the kids for a little while Although there arn't a large amount of animals to see, having 3 lions makes up for it. They also have a splash pad to keep kids cool in the summer and an interesting island of lemurs.

Let me start with the pricing. If I can recall correctly I paid $7 for admission and even less for the kids. This was definitely a steal considering you can spend a whole day there and not worry about spending if you're on a budget. There is a concession stand that has drinks, food and ice cream all reasonably priced.... More

Great little zoo with a big Wow factor. First of all it's only $7 for adults and $5.50 for kids and under 3 is free. Second there is a great variety of animals from lions and leopards and lemurs to kangaroos and alpacas. Third if it's hot out they have a splash pad. Can't beat it, great little zoo.

This is a great place to bring your family for a visit. The animal exhibits are awesome. They have a nocturnal house to see how these night time animals exist, a tropical rainforest, kangaroos and even a white lion. Bring the bathing suit for the kids as they have a splash pad for those hot summer days. There is also... More

Small zoo but very enjoyable especially for smaller children. The animal exhibits are very easy for kids to see the animals which is really nice. The splash pad is great so throw in a towel and bathing suit. There is a small changing area. Once done with the zoo, the playground just outside the entrance is also very fun. Enjoy!

Loved going to Capron Park as a child and continue to go back as an adult. Look forward to the additions they make every couple of years to keep things fresh at the zoo. They have always done great outreach in local elementary schools to keep people interested in zoology and animals in general. Recently they have added an albino... More
