OK as a "for profit" zoo. Not as good as it once was as a not-for- profit organization. Train ride should allow for stops at hippo exhibit and pause at gorilla island. Much fewer hoofed animals on the preserve now. Are they feeding them off to the big cats? Bird cage is great for kids.

Well first off, the zoo has been a place I have taken my 3 and 4 year old to many times. Feeding the llamas and sheep and giraffes are pretty cool. The poor bears look hot and miserable eveyime I have been. There is a cute train which you pay for separate and is the only way to possible see... More

This is not your big city zoo, but it is well kept and has a great variety of animals. All the employees are friendly and you can tell they love working there. You can buy food to feed the animals. Feeding the giraffe and the pig are our favorites. It doesn't take long to go through it but you can... More

I've been to this zoo a couple of times and really enjoy it. My grandson loves it , especially being able to feed some of the animals. cups of feed are a little extra but the prices are reasonable. the gorillas are amazing.

First off understand that this is not a big zoo, it is small. However, it is laid out nicely and they have a nice variety of animals. All the workers there were very friendly. My wife and I went there on a cold day and it was almost all to ourselves. One thing they have that is really unique is... More
