This is an excellent zoo for a small town! Lots of shade and unique animals, nice walking paths and photo opportunities. Highly recommend for young children.

“A nice park, fun small town zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Definitely a good place for a family outing. There's a campground, picnic areas, duck pond, zoo, and even an opportunity to ride an old fashioned carosel!

“The Zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

A great little zoo, easy to see in a few hours. The zoo keeps growing and the gounds are beautifully landscaped. We are amazed by the buffalos and the otters. Oh, and don't forget "The Carousel" great little history and story of surviving the "flood"
