We were surprised how small the zoo is (mostly a circle loop), but we really enjoyed it. Several animals that are not common in other zoos. Our daughter also loved the playground area. I enjoyed the view, and the cattle grazing.

It's a good small town zoo. There some wonderful enclosures and you can get closer to some of the animals that you can at bigger zoos. You can defiantly see where the zoos has been recently upgraded as well as where they are currently upgrading. It's $4 bucks to get in and plan for 30-60 minutes. There are lots of... More

It took about 45 minutes to see everything. Very small zoo. And a lot of common animals you see along the road like a raccoon, coyote, goats, hoarse, longhorns, etc. I will say the Lions and Tigers were cool. Never been that close to them before. Definitely will take my niece their. And its very cheap.

The zoo is SMALL, so do not expect anything large like you would see in OKC or Dallas. My husband and I took our one year old here for his first visit to a zoo. It was the perfect size for a toddler. The exhibits were clean, the animals seemed happy. I really enjoyed the tiger and lion exhibit, you... More

I was here for one day. The zoo tour was very exciting! The Manager, Antonio Morales was very kind. He had a wonderful personality ad made the entire family feel at home

It was pretty warm and I felt for the poor animals!!! The habitats are so small and very little water available to the animals!!! So sad!!! The bears were literally panting non stop and the poor foxes looked almost dead!!!

We visited last year and decided to make a day trip of it again this year! Small but fun is a great description for this little zoo. It will only take about 1 hour to go through, but it's well spent. Admission is super cheap. The animals were alert and moving around while we were there mid day. Worth visiting... More

I have only been in the area for three days and was told how wonderful the zoo was. Well, me and my husband went and it was so small! The animals didnt have any energy. The water in their bowls were dirty or none at all. I was disappointed and feel sorry for those animals!

not many exotic animals, but a good array of those native to this area. Many upgrades over the past couple of years make this a good attraction, especially for younger kids. Price is reasonable also.

Very nice zoo. Nice car parking, everything is cool. Except pigs, rhinos, elephants, crocodiles, but for 4$ it's ok. :)
