Great zoo. Lots of animals, great for kids and adults. A little pricey... But seems like they are using the money to do great things and expand. Def worth going to!

We had a great time at the petting zoo. We fed giraffes, buffalo, llamas, hogs, and more. My son raced the lioness. The train ride was fun but short. We had a herd of ostriches follow the train. Buy extra food at the entrance.

Has a wide variety of animals. Most shown in their natural habitat. Some of the animals were born and raised there. Animal food vending machines enable kids to feed many of the animals.

The zoo isn't big but all the animals seemed well cared for. The pathways are easy to navigate with a wheelchair and the fencing is at the height to make viewing the animals easy. Go in the morning and you may hear the Siamangs do thier warning call for any other family group to stay away from their territory. Signs... More

First the bad part: this is a very small zoo. If you want a huge, new, large budget zoo this is not the one. Some enclosures are outdated, but they seem to be working on that. Animals could use a little more enrichment, they seem quit bored at times. Now the good: I visit this zoo almost every week with... More

Wonderful small zoo. Animals are well fed, stress free and happy! Looks like infrastructure improvements are in process. Also stroller and wheel chair friendly. Admission price is affordable..but if you live in the area, buy the yearly pass and visit often. I took off one star only as the exhibits need signage..but I am thinking this is in the works!...

Our family of four enjoyed the zoo, overall, but there were so many little things wrong, I can't give it a higher rating. It is still a good family outing, and I would still recommend it. With a military discount, we paid $70 to get in and ride the train. That is about the same as an IMAX movie. It... More

Me and my wife go every 2 or 3 months. Very affordable price for a very nice zoo. From the road, it doesn't look very big, but it really is. You can get very close to many of the animals, feed the giraffes, and there are giants just wandering around! Last time we were there we bought a painting that... More
