“Dedicated zoo staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

This is a good place to spend an afternoon with your kids. There is a good variety of animals. Wear comfortable shoes because there is fair amount of walking. They also have a nice trail that shows replicas of animals that are now extinct. Very interesting. Last time we were there it looked like the grounds could use some maintenance (mowing, etc). They struggle for funding but do a great job with what they have.

“interesting for all”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

we took our grand kids this summer, and it was interesting for them to see all the animals that they have. the Zoo is struggling financially so with more funds it might give it the extra zip it needs

“Nice Zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The kids loved the monkeys. Staff were helpful. Our children are both 8 years old and they enjoyed their time at the zoo. Running from each exhibit of animals. We all had a great time.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

interesting for the kids, but not a heck of a lot to offer a sophisticate. hum-drum animal collection. struggling with their budget. spend about an hour, go and elsewhere for a beer.

“Nice low key zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

This isn't a big glitzy city zoo, it's low tech and easy to see quickly. Animals seem well cared for, not a huge exotic selection but great for kids who have never seen wild animals before
