“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Nice "Small" zoo. Take about an hour to stroll and look at and even pet some of the animals. Nice leisure activity to calm a busy day.

“Sorry....not a great place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Limited animal selections, that were not very interesting.The place was very crowded, and we stood in line for 40 minutes, because their credit card machine went down. People were scrambling to find cash to get in. For a little local zoo, I suppose it's ok. I'm used to the best zoos, as I am from Chicago.

“Farm Zoo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

For an inexpensive zoo it is not bad. It has more farm animals than most zoos. I go at least 2 times each year with my class. Fun for an hour or so.

“zoo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This zoo is worth the trip if you have smaller children or if you are a zoo fan. It's small, but still fun. Most of the animals at this zoo are animals you would find in our area.

“Nice Zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Even though the zoo is small, it's a really nice zoo. We went in the morning, and the animals were active. The price is unbelievable at only $4. What's not to like. They upkeep was good, and they had just enough to see and to walk that your child won't be saying, "I can't walk anymore." It is VERY do-able and really, very nice.
