So my 1.5 year old had had enough of family sitting around moping after the holidays so DH & I took her to the local zoo in December. We were not expecting much but a fantastic ranger took the five of us on a tour of the zoo like no other. Not only did he know so much about his... More

We happened by Capron Park Zoo on a warm December day and decided to check it out. It was very cheap compared to some zoo's ($7.00) and they had some cool animals. Some of the exhibits were closed for the winter but there was enough there to see, especially for our admission price. The kangaroos hopping around their pen, the... More

It's worth the trip to go to Capron. They now have a new sloth bear that will be debuted to the public very soon. The park itself is fantastic and the zoo is clean and tidy. The family will love spending the day at the park and the zoo.

I love walking through this beautiful zoo. It's small enough to walk but has a good amount of animals and other things to see. The grounds are well kept as are the animals. A very tranquil spot to visit.

Heard about this little hidden gem from a friend. We decided to give it a try with our 3 yr. old grandson. He had a blast! Just big enough to keep a toddler's interest and not too big to get tired out! Being a little boy, his favorite besides the lion was the Water Miser (reptile)! Just enough interaction through...

Our 2 grandchildren love for us to take them to the zoo, as they love to share, that they know the animals by name. Plus, we have perfect weather on this trip to the east coast. The park surrounding the zoo is beautiful ! !

I'm not a zoo lover. I just have a hard time with the whole concept. That being said, when Jordan was a little boy they had some of the best and most fun education experiences we had as mother and son. I also was able to take my mother there and make a wish come true for her and she... More
