Over 40 of our animals are endangered, including the Humboldt Penguin, Amur leopard and Matschie's tree kangaroo.

“Young children's zoo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

It's good for a young children's zoo (under 6). For parents, it's a good zoo to go to when you want to be in and out in an hour!

“A favorite of grandchildren”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

In the spring and summer, take grandkids to this zoo lots of times. They never seem to tire of seeing the same animals and doing their 'same old things' while visiting. The horse and train rides have also become standard for our visits! Will be anxous to see the 'updated' versiion of the zoo when we go next time - perhaps next week!

“Don't miss if you're too young to read this!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Excellent children's Zoo, for children under age 9. Lot's too see and do on the less is best scale for early adventurer's and toddlers.
