The price was a little high considering it is not that big and it can be seen in less than 3 hours. There are really great shows, like the bird one where you get to experience them up close. The animals were in very great condition and the talks were very precise and informative. Everybody was nice and helped you... More

This zoo is thoroughly entertaining, has plenty of animals, water play area for kids, and enjoyed by the community. Miami zoo is larger and you are exhausted from walking afterwards. Our zoo is smaller and it fulfills all expectations of a zoo. You can get some fantastic photos of the animals because you are closer to them. Miami zoo is... More

This is a great zoo, especially considering that this is not a very big city. The exhibits have been expanded to group animals by their natural areas. The FL area is a great learning experience for the kids and adults. Then there is the fountain for the little guys to play in. You can buy food or bring your own... More

Apparently a lot of money has been spent on a recent renovation. In my opinion , it was money well spent. They have an excellent variety of animals , exhibits and shows to keep everyone interested . I'm sure you will not be disappointed.

This zoo is the greatest! I have been going there for over thirty years and still love it. I have seen it grow and add animals. It is like walking through a rain forest. Very lush. And everyone there has a strong love for animals and conservation. I encourage everyone to come and visit. There is a nice café and... More

A great zoo, located in a central spot of the county. A great place for kids, with lots of fountains to play in and good food places, Lots of paths that wind around where you can easily pass the time enjoyably.

We love zoos and aquariums, and this was a nice one to visit! The pathways are lined with bamboo plants and trees which reminded us of Animal Kingdom in WDW. It is nicely maintained and there are a variety of animals here. We loved the koala bear, and Mardi the white alligator is really neat. His enclosure is quite large... More

Nice day spent with the family. The Zoo was home to over 1,400 animals from Florida, the Americas, Asia, and Australia. Nice bridges and pathways that lead you around the zoo over streams, ponds and waterfalls. A few shows offered as well. They have a café and a gift shop. Open 9-5pm daily. Well worth the trip.

It is very cool to go with kids and spend a lot of hours seeing all of the animals and wildlife there. The only thing that I found to complain is about some old stuff that I saw there. They could take care better of the place. Some things needed to painted and fixed. If you are going with your... More
