“Good zoo for a small city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Good layout for viewers. The zoo has a variety of habitats that were more natural and appropriate for the animals. Impressive for a city this size.

“Small But Cute”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Great prices, friendly staff, and nice exhibits. It is a small zoo but still fun. The info on all the animals was interesting and you could see the animals almost no matter where they sat. There were a few interactive things to play with and food to feed a few animals with. I liked how they grouped some animals together like they are in nature. There was even a small petting zoo and one staff member had a spider we could hold. I loved the photo op areas and how they let the peacocks just wild.

“Great visit!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

It is a small zoo but very well taken care of. Movie nights during summer, special events, a nice water fountain for kids to cool off, it is worth a visit.

“Great Place for Kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We brought our 5 year old grandson down for the day. We had seen a write-up of this zoo in our local Sunday paper (Sunday News, Manchester, NH). It was wonderful and very worthwhile. While it is not big, it has enough animals to keep a 5 year old curious and then it also has a splash pad that squirts water and also a bouncy house. We all enjoyed our visit and really liked the fact that the animals looked very well taken care of. It also has a train and merry-go-round. It is very reasonable to get into and the food at the concession is very reasonable, although very limited. Would not mind taking the almost two hour ride to do it again, and if lucky, the grandson will fall asleep on the way back.
