We had 2 children with us and they had a very happy time walking around this lovely little zoo and seeing all the animals. The zoo is very easy to walk through and lots of shaded areas where one could rest. The kids had a camel ride which they loved and also the splashing area where they could cool off.... More

Among zoos this one is manageable and pleasant. The elephant exhibit was recently enlarged and there is a (growing) baby elephant to enjoy in a large area. Almost all the cages are gone, and this is a pleasant outing for kids and adults at a nominal price.

Love the zoo(I am a volunteer) It is just the right size for a short visit. Great variety of animals in realistic settings. Very friendly staff and volunteers. Lovely vegetation and shade for a hot day's visit.

Absolutely love the Zoo!!! Try to go at least once weekly. Enjoy the early morning walk at the park and end it with watching the elephants and my grandsons favorite Giraffe's have their breakfast! Very enjoyable :-)

So enjoy visiting and seeing all of the animals. The new baby elephant Nandi is so cute and has been fun watching her growing up.

This was the perfect zoo for a 2 1/2 yr. old. It was small yet had everything a little one would want to see. Lions, a tiger, bears, several elephants including a baby, camels, and more. We went early before the crowds. We left two hours later while everyone was still happy and having fun instead of exhausted and whining.... More

This zoo is very smal but they manage to pack lots into your visit. There is a new exhibit for the elephants, which gives them lots of room to move around so you can get a good look at them. One of our favorites is the hummingbird enclosure. You will get up close and personal with these little speedsters as... More

For a medium sized zoo it offers a great variety. The baby Elephant with it's parents are adorable. A fun day for young and old!
