Visited midday on a Wednesday. There were a few buses of kids (day camps) at the park as well as many families. We were given a "feeding" schedule when we arrived and while there saw four feedings : bobcats, lions, gibbons and baboons. These are a real highlight, and notably the baboons and lions. This is not a fancy zoo... More

Please do not go to this zoo. I was SO mad at the tiny cages and I am not one to make a fuss about zoos and animals and such. Literally they have sooooooo much property with empty space. Like I mean you will see a 6x8 cage of 5 foxes smoshed together next to an open field of 30... More

Had a great visit at the zoo today! Staff was super friendly and informative. You could really tell they all cared for the animals. Animals were in great enclosures that had plenty of clean water. The animals all looked happy and well fed! We even got to hold a baby fox!

I visited this zoo with my 8-year-old daughter. We had heard negative comments, but had heard that there were new owners, so decided to see for ourselves if this place was worth it! What a great decision we made! We got the Groupon Deal (although I think it would have been worth it even at regular price). The animals had... More

The new owners of the zoo have certainly cleaned the place up! It still needs a few updates, but the people there are knowledgeable and friendly. It is a bit over priced for such a small place especially the $8 for toddlers. As seniors we paid $12 each and even that was a bit much for what we saw. But... More

We had a great group outing at the Papanack Zoo. (Booking the event was very easy and they were very quick to respond to my email). The staff were very accommodating and friendly. They took the time to explain everything to the children and adults in the group. All of the children really loved seeing all of the baby animals.... More

Our group of 8 families had a wonderful time visiting the Zoo. The zoo staff is very welcoming and the zoo has a relaxed atmosphere with lots of up close and hands on activities for the kids. Our kids aged 8 & 10 and said it was one of their happiest days. The kids loved meeting the baby animals and... More

Our trip to the zoo was just so much fun! The new owners changed so much and the employees are all so nice and friendly! The animals are fun, they come close to you and some of them even put on a show for you! They had baby animals for everyone to pet! They have great feeding shows as well... More

I haven't been there recently but I liked it the last time. I've been reading some bad press about this "road side zoo" so I'd think twice about going there again. It costed enough to get in I remember. I was told it was orignally a breeding zoo so the animals are in a more relaxed natural setting than some... More
