Enjoyed our visit

This is a smaller zoo however it is quite nice and free (suggested donation $2 adult, $1 child). We defiantly enjoyed our visit and would recommend.

I knew that this would be a smaller zoo I just expected a bit more. Many (I mean most) of the animal cages were empty. There were a few cool animals to see- wolf, bear and 2 cougars but other than that there wasn't anything much too exciting. My kids would get disappointed as the ran to the next cage... More

This is a tiny little zoo, but very well maintained, and the animals look well cared for. It only took us about 30 minutes to walk around, so it made for a nice stop.

Not very many animals to see. Felt extremely sorry for the wolf as he was pacing on his circle path and did not look happy, but extremely stressed. His enclosure is way too small. Restaurant and the big building were not open. Read some other reviews about all the animals others saw, but we only saw 3 animals and some... More

Too hot for the animals apparently the day we visited as most were all in their shelters. Walkways well maintained. Just the right size for younger children. We went out West this summer to numerous national parks - saw no bison! But saw two @ Lincoln Park Zoo. Kids were amazed by prarie dogs, wolf,& eagle!

My family visited the zoo July 4, 2015. What a nice place! It was very well kept and clean. The children were excited when they discovered that it even had a playground. I enjoyed reading the fact plaques that were near the animals' enclosure aloud to my family. Definitely will go back if we are in the area again.

The wolf was scared and has paced so much the grass is gone and the ground is hard. I felt sorry for some of the animals. The zoo was clean. The bison enclosure needs repair, can tell they are scratching on the fence. All the bulk is hard on the fences.

Very small zoo, but just right for a toddler and 4 month old. The zoo takes donations and has a small selection of animals including cougars, wolves, bison, farm animals, tortoise, Asiatic black bear. We were there two hours and spent half at the playground and farm animal barn. The zoo is close to a city park with 13 tennis... More

I liked that the staff was honest about the care of the animals and birds. I feel that there was enough space for the animals and the staff was very helpful when i had a question about the care and keep . There was a little something around every corner of this park

A perfect sized zoo for little ones. The animals were well cared for too. Bear, cougar, bald eagle, and other animals live here.
