You cannot expect this to compare to the likes of the San Diego Zoo or Brookfield zoo. But what you will find is a great place to bring the kids and learn something while you're there. This is a small zoo in a small town. It is based more on animal rescue and education than an actual zoo. There are... More

Four stars instead of five because there is only one bathroom in the whole park. LOTS of great animals to see! Well taken care of too! Park for kids. no water fountains though and the machine cost $2 for a bottle water.

This is a small zoo and it has nothing on San Diego (for example), but we love it! You get such personal interactions with the animals. It is a wonderful place to go for a few hours to explore. Check Groupon - there are often deals!

For a small zoo, this is a great cross section of animals to see. Our favorite was Cassie the Tiger. She is fed at 11 a.m. and it is a must to see her in all her 325 lbs. Magnificent. There are also 2 bears to see. We loved this place.

I visited this zoo today and I was shocked at the smell, and the small cages these beautiful animals are in. A huge beautiful Bald Eagle in a cage so small he can do nothing but sit on a limb. A tiger in a very small pen, a black bear COVERED in flies. So pathetic and so depressing. I left... More

For a small zoo hidden on the outskirts of town, Heritage Park Zoo (recently renamed Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary has an impressive number of animals. The zoo is a sanctuary for "non-releasable wildlife", which in and of itself is reason enough for a visit. You should check their website before visiting as they have a number of interesting special events... More

We saw all of the great reviews on here and thought that this might be a nice, inexpensive day trip to cooler weather from our home in Phoenix. Wrong. This place was depressing. The enclosures are terribly small, chain link pens. For example, the eagles are in small pens no larger than 10x10 with signs that proclaim they can how... More

I study veterinary medicine so I am always eager to visit any animals.. this place is hands down one of the best places to go to. We went today, and hour before they closed and still had time to check everything out. A few of the animals were sleeping, probably because we arrived so late but it's okay. The animals... More

I study animal behaviour and welfare so I can tell these animals are very well looked after! I was very pleased to see all the enrichment provided - the mountain lion was playing with her toy when we visited! Lovely staff. Small but it's a good day out.
