Flint just turned one year old. Lisa the Zoo Director continues to make this a better zoo. Colleen, the Education Coordinator has classes on Mon, Wed, and Fri. We go every year. Visit soon. Spring and Summer will find this place in full bloom, from the many plantings

The park is a very nice picnic area and there is the most wonderful small train that takes the kids (big, little, young, old) around the perimeter. It brought back great memories for us and would create the same for the kids.. The zoo is not a huge zoo, but the animals were where you could easily drive through and... More

While visiting my son and looking for something to do, he suggested visiting the zoo. It's free ! It was a shock to see the beautiful landscaping and as many animals for being such a small zoo. We were very impressed. It's well worth a visit if your passing through town.

This was a very well landscaped small zoo. It had a very easy to walk path that can be done in about an hour or two.

Ok I have to say I landscaping in this zoo is the best I have seen in a long time! It is a smaller zoo but I enjoy it very much. We saw some animals that we have never seen before. If you get a chance you should stop by. Oh and it free!

This little zoo was a bit of a surprise. It's very small, but seems to be carefully maintained. Lovely walking paths, with beautiful landscaping. The animal pens are small but the animals seems to be healthy and well cared for. Children or gardeners will love to visit here. And it's free!

Relatively small zoo but a great place to go and spend some time with the kids. There is a lake with a lot of ducks, which is my son's favorite part of the zoo. There is also a playground for kids. Train ride is available in the summer.

This is a great place to get the family out of the house. The plants and flowers are beautiful and well-maintained and there is a play area. There is a nice variety of animals for a small town zoo. Admission is FREE!

This zoo is only about 5 acres but the landscaping is probably one of the best I have ever seen in a zoo. Maybe not a big zoo but it does have many different species of animals and well laid out. For a free zoo, I was very impressed with how well it I taken care of.
