This zoo is small, a nice size if you have little ones. Since we went early in the season, a lot of exhibits were being refurbished. The zoo is free and there is a lovely playground outside.

I love that this zoo the animals seem so happy. All have so much space and you see the zookeepers during the day. The giraffes ate my favorite with all the room they have! The bears and lions really put on a show yesterday, so fun. Thanks for all you do for the animals, and it's free to boot! So... More

The zoo is the perfect day trip. It does not have a set admission price but accepts all donations. The animals are well cared for and the habitats are immaculate. We were fortunate to be able to talk to some of the staff and they are very knowledgable and caring people. The grounds are maintained beautifully. The zoo offers and... More

This is a great zoo. It's free but it's really important to make a donation bc you can tell they take very good care of the animals. Great aviary, large variety of cool animals. Loved every minute of it.

The Aviary house by far was he best experience ever with the Pink Flamingoes flying right up to you! Some animals where inside for the winter but my wife and... More

We love this zoo. We visit every month even in the winter. It's clean and fun. It's good for young children or even adults. In the summer there is a carousel, train ride, and rock climbing wall but there is a fee for them but not the zoo.
