Nice zoo. Great price. Lions and tigers are worth the visit. It will take about an hour to cover the entire zoo. Would go again.

This was a small zoo. It did not take very much time to go through this zoo. They had the usually animals such as lions, tigers, monkeys. They had a wonderful building that housed snakes and reptiles. The only bad thing was they had some buffalo, but were on the other side of the land for them. It was very... More

Well... it was something to do and it didn't cost very much. For two adults, one child over 5 and two babies, it cost $10 to get in. This is a small zoo that takes about an hour to get through. The sign in the front when entering was not only funny but accurate. "Children, please control your parents". It's... More

This is a great little zoo. So well kept, all the animals look happy and well cared for. It only costs $4 admission so it's well worth the money.

We love to go to zoos and this was our 3rd in 5 weeks of travel. This was the smallest of the three and very clean and well kept. Keepers were friendly and the information about the animals was very informative. We spent a few hours and ended up walking around the circular design twice. Great for kids.

This is a small zoo, but well kept. The animals look healthy. There is plenty of parking and places to purchase food. The reptile building was very nice. The education center was closed as they prepared for the Christmas holiday activities. It was nice to see teenagers volunteering there. Some of the displays were empty. It has the potential to...

We were in town visiting our grandson and great grandson (two years old) and had some time to kill so we went to the zoo. I was pleased with the admission price, the presentation of the wildlife, and our time spent. There were not very many people there while we were visiting so we were able to take a lot... More

This is a small zoo but it is kept nice and neat. The animals are cared for and it shows. The kid's loved going because it is not an enormous zoo that takes all day to go through.

Perfect size zoo! Only took an hour or two to lea surly stroll around the grounds. Monday you get in free. Plenty of different animals but not an overwhelming zoo that takes all day to see. Easy to get to and free parking. Small play area inside for small kids to take a break. Plenty of shade and benches to... More

Felt bad seeing the lions & tigers in such a small enclosure. Wish they'd expand. Male lion definitely put on a great show of voicing his opinion for food at feeding time. FREE on Mondays.
