Price was good, but they may need to increase the price a bit and provide a better environment for the animals. We visited a couple years ago and decided to go back again this year. Probably will not return again. The trails are shaded and nice. Trail by the river and the bird estuary were very nice. They have old... More

This can hardly be considered a zoo. The animals are in extremely small living quarters. Most of the animals were pacing back and forth, with chunks of hair missing, and had empty water and food bowls. This is in no way humane, and I feel awful that I gave money and contributed to these animals being treated so poorly. This... More

The zoo was not huge, but you could see all of the animals in one day which was a plus. Our girls loved this zoo. We purchased a large bag of peanuts at the beginning of the day and were able to feed the animals, which the kids loved. The oldest who is 13 said this was the best zoo... More

I was nervous after reading some of the reviews but we decided to give it a try with our 3 yr old and 12 yr old while the older boys did a round of golf, and my kids absolutely LOVED it. Everyone was friendly and you cannot beat the price... we paid less than $40.00 for 4,and that included a... More

The one thing we liked the most was that kids had a chance to feed a lot of animals. They enjoyed it a lot. Not a big zoo but enough to get away from hot weather for couple of hours.

Don't waste your time supporting this facility. It is Poorly maintained, stinky beyond belief, and the animals are kept in small cages. Many of the chain link fences were bent and in need of repair.

I loved, but hated this zoo. I will start with the positives. First, the park was priced ok. The second thing I enjoyed was that even though it was almost 90 degrees outside, the trails are shaded and spaced so you aren't running into other people. I love animals and it was nice that you could feed and interact with... More

It's not a major zoo with jack Hannah but it's a nice place to visit. It's clean and the animals are well cared for. Friendly staff.

We took our 5 and 14 year olds to the zoo. It had a lot of animals to look at. We could feed several too. The zeedonk and white turkey where some of my favorites. You do have to walk through the park but the trails are wide and not hard to walk. The price was very reasonable (34$ for... More
