This is one of the best zoos I have ever been to. It's on the Main Street but feels like it's secluded. You must visit this place!

This zoo never claims to compete with the bigger zoos. Most of the animals it has are there because they were rescued and the zoo is their permanent home. Its only two or three dollars to get in but what a nice surprise once you go in! Its mostly if not all shaded, the grounds are well kept and they... More

All the animals were great! Especially the black swans. The clerk at the gift shop was friendly and was very informative on the animals there.

From the outside it seems very small, once we got in we spent about 3 hours just looking at the animals. Love that we didn't walk 2 miles, everything was close. They had different animals together in some enclosures which made it really neat. Squirrels were running all over and the pigeons were fun to feed, of which neither were... More

I felt sorry for the animals that must live in the small cages. However, there are positives-- there is a nice playground for children and the grounds of the Zoo are clean.

I'm not a huge fan of zoos. The animals here are injured and either recuperating or not able to get better. It's nice they have a place to be where they are safe. Little kids will definitely enjoy this zoo, and it's easy to walk around.

This was a fun zoo to visit. There were lots of animals I had never seen before in a zoo. It was big enough to see lots of animals, but not so big to be overwhelming.
