a few hours of fun

We loved the splash pad. The animals there are fun for the kids to look at and they have a great dark room for the nocturnal animals. Worth the yearly pass if you live close!!

This zoo is fun and not huge but there are lots of interesting animals. It's a great place to take small children up to age 12. There is a playground and picnic tables. The rest rooms are clean. We went in late April so it was quite chilly still and some of the animals didn't want to move around. They... More

I have been here several times and have always had a great time. This is a small zoo, though there are plenty of animals to see, some of which you di not see in other zoos. The fee is minimal for admission and given that the $ is to support it, we are happy to pay more. There is a... More

We went here on an unseasonably warm day in November and practically had the zoo to ourselves. The small size of the zoo was perfect for our 3 year old and she had a great day. We were able to spend as much time viewing the animals as we wanted without being in anyone's way. It was like we had... More

Just big enough so the little ones don't get tired of walking. Best for the under 10 crowd. Not very expensive, clean & plenty of parking!

I live close to this zoo so I visited it often. The zoo is just big enough so the little ones don't get bored! It also has a great playground and plenty of space to have a picnic. One of our favorite times to visit was in the winter on a warmer day when we had finished sledding in the... More

This was my first visit to Capron park and I enjoyed it. This is a small zoo just great for toddlers. I was shocked at how reasonable the admission was . My husband and I took our 4 year old granddaughter . The place was immaculate the staff was friendly. The Alpacas were a big hit as were the goats... More

I live a few miles from this zoo and have visited many times! The zoo is small and takes about an hour to walk through. This is a perfect zoo for young children! The zoo even has a small water fountain that kids can play in!!! Admission is next to nothing (under $10). Lions, monkeys, bears, reptiles, lemurs, etc.... This... More

Living locally, I tend to forget what is around me, but this zoo is really enjoyable and has been around for quite some time. I remember going when I was younger and bringing my niece (who is now in her 20's). Both my boys have gone and love it! Going again this weekend as well. The birthday parties they offer... More
