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

Indoor area's. one for nocturnal amphibians and rodent type animals. They also have a little splash pad area, so bring a bathing for the kids. Friendly staff.... More

While it's a very small zoo, it is clean, well maintained and situated in a beautiful, sprawling park. It was just the right size for a family with small kids (ages 5 and 2), they lasted about 3 hours. Some quick tips: dress your kids in bathing suits for the splash pad and bring towels. Bring quarters to feed the... More

I debated on whether or not to review this gem for fear of crowding. It is a small zoo with a spray park. The animals are well treated and all the major ones are there. The zoo is located in the middles of beautiful public park and only costs $6 per person to visit!

We've been to large zoos all over the world. This may not compete with those, but it is a good local zoo. Our grandkids really enjoyed it and that's all we cared about. You wander around at your own pace, so it can be an all day thing or just a couple of hours. You set the pace. Enjoy.

I was referred to this zoo by a local and was so glad I took my 2 girls (ages 7 and 6)! We did not arrive until about 2:00 p.m. I was kind of nervous about that because the park closed at 5:00 and I was afraid we would not have enough time to see everything. But that was plenty... More
