I brought my small family with me to what I thought was just a petting zoo. We soon found out that this was no ordinary petting zoo. They had much more than we expexted. We spent the day having fun on the playground, walking in the aviary, hitching a ride on the train, meeting new adorable friends, and much more.... More

The entire staff do a wonderful job in making you feel welcomed and they take pride in the upkeep of the attractions. It's refreshing to stroll thru the petting areas undisturbed and at your own pace. It gave time for my daughter and I to bond. Also, great ice cream place just down the road from the attraction too.
