I love this place. All of the animals are rescued from bad situations and cannot be released back into the wild. The bears have wonderful enclosures. My favorite is Henry. They have 2 Siberian female tigers too. Resident deer hang out by choice. A nice place to bring children especially during Christmas with zoo lights.

My group was so impressed with the care the animals are given and the entire feeling of the Zoo. We particularly enjoyed the wolf enclosure, with grass and room for them to run and play. Highly suggest this for a family outing with children of all ages.

This is not a large Zoo but a fun place to take kids. Animals are close up and easy to watch. Very fun at Christmas when it is decorated with lights.

The staff is very friendly, ready to share some great info about the animal - where they came from, what their issues are - why they are there! You can stroll along at your own pace and get to know the animals within.

My niece and I had such an amazing time, young children will have the time of there life's. The only thing is the train rides can get pricy.

Cute and quaint ! These are rescued animals. Spider monkeys, Tigers, bears, mountain lions......a lot to see. Love to go and walk around. There is a library and really nice park in the same lot. Surprised that the small food stand had good prices and decent food. Lots of chickens and peacocks walking around.

Pleasant place to spent a couple of hours at with the grandchildren. Not a large zoo, nor, did I expect it to be. Not exciting, just OK.
