“Pretty site”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Be sure to check out the old settler cemetery across the road, behind the closed church. Gravestones that run all the way back past the American Revolution.

“Surprising Grounds - great place to spent a day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Wished we had more time to explore than the several hours we had actually allotted. The grounds are great for walkers, plenty to see with the zoo, Botanical Gardens, gazebo, etc. Lots of fun with a camera. Apparently quite populat with angulars is the number of fisherfolk was any indication.

“Great little zoo - kinda "bigger on the inside."”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This does not compare to zoos in the Bronk, DC, San Antonio, San Diego but it still meets your zoo needs when you have a craving for a zoo visit. Its clean, the animals have a decent amount of space and its not depressing (like the Mendon zoo!) If you're visiting from out of town, don't waste a vacation day here. You probably have soemthing similar near you.

“Watch if you have Asthma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

If you have Asthma be careful and bring Kleenex if you come during the summer. You can get a bad case of the sniffles if you don't watch out. Overall- amazing

“winter time just as nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Did you know in the winter time the zoo is at a reduced price and you can walk around and see and spend more time looking at the animals and the special areas of the zoo.

They show as many animals as they can who can take the weather conditions of the day and all the indoor atractions are open and warm! the grounds are just as beautiful and the workers just as friendly and helpful. there web cite also has alot more info about winter activities and hours and special events during winter vacation if tey are having any. Though all the animals are not availabile to see there are many and you can get a better view then the very busy times. The summer is just as wonderful but I thought I would let visitors know the late fall and winter can be just as fun and very pretty if you have just a few snow flakes falling down as you walk. It costs less as I have mentioned which can help a family on a budget!

Enjoy
