Love Capron Park. It has a playground, a decent zoo and a big field and grounds to walk around or have a picnic. It is nicely landscaped. A wonderful place to visit. Get outside and visit !

Been going here for a couple years now with the family. The zoo itself is smaller than say RWZ, but a lot of fun. There is a nice little area to feed goats and llamas and a great splash pad during the summer months. Directly outside the zoo is a fantastic playground my kids love

We take our friends there along with their children. It's not too large. You can cover it in less than an hour if you wanted. Surprisingly large assortment of large and small animals. Lions, sloth bears, kangaroos, llamas and other exotic animals not typically in the big zoos. Also, there is a water park for the kids and a huge... More

One of the few city owned zoos in the state. The care, compassion and professionalism of the entire staff is plainly evident when you tour this zoo. The animals and their well being is first and foremost. That said, they manage to tie in education and entertainment to keep kids of all ages interested and engaged for the entire day.... More

This is a small zoo with not as many exhibits as some of the bigger parks, but it was clean with lots of open paths for kids to run. On top of that it is so much more affordable than some of the other local zoos. Nice place to spend an afternoon!

This is a nice park with a small zoo on the grounds. The part has ample room, places for kids to play, or if you just want to stroll around and not be bothered by other people its great. A friend of mine and had a picnic on one of the little knolls next to a monument. Very scenic. The... More

Fun zoo for kids. Relatively small, can see all the exhibits in 1-2 hours, have a snack and play on the playground just outside the zoo all in a morning or afternoon. Good variety of interesting animals in well maintained exhibits. The zoo itself is also very well maintained and is really a great value. Not as large as Roger... More

Been going to Capron Zoo since 1973. After 40 years it still is fun.. The new splash pad is great for the young kids. Its an Excellent place to take the family if you have limited time and money. Short. Sweet very nostalgic. It will keep you coming back. Prices arent that bad.either.
