Feeding time is the best time but all of the zoo is fun and educational for the family. I liked the indoor tropical area with birds and turtles in a natural habitat free.

I have been going to this zoo since I was a little kid and I still love it! It is small but it has a lot to offer! There is always special events going on for kids and the zoo is always adding new animals to their exhibits. I think this place could use a little makeover since it has... More

Love having a nice but small zoo close to home. Never knew about this zoo until I had children and love taking them there to see how much they light up. Definitely worth the money and hour drive. Thinking of investing in a family membership so we can visit a few times over the year. The kangaroo/wallaroo exhibit is prolly... More

This place is good for all ages. It is a small zoo and easy to get around. It fills a day full of interesting and fun things. Can't wait to visit again, just to walk around and look.

This is a nice small zoo and not too crowd. My 4 year old grandson loves it. He really enjoys the turtles and the goats, but the best part is the otter that swims around and around.

I reviewed this zoo a year ago and it has only gotten better. We got ourselves a family membership ($60) and it was totally worth it. Since last year, I believe they have gotten over 3 new animals and at least 3 babies were born. It really bothers me that some people say the animals aren't being treated well, they... More

This was honestly the saddest and most depressing zoo we have ever been to. The animal enclosures were small and didn't seem well kept. The zoo workers couldn't have cared less about their jobs or actually caring for the animals. We were really disappointed in our visit.

Our granddaughters had a great time at this zoo. They are 2 and 5 years old. The highlights were the seal feeding, the carousel and the goat petting area. Great for young children!

For a population of 130,000 you will find no better zoo. It is excellent for 5 to 12 year olds. Quite clean with many different exhibits. A full tour of it will take one to two hours depending. Perfect for children.
