This is not a huge zoo but is hugely enjoyable, It is laid out well and easy to see in a few hours. You can feed the giraffes and at times, see babies alongside the mamas. Clean restrooms and some food available. We had a nice afternoon there.

Really nice day at the zoo, lot of beautiful animals to look at and some of them you can feed by hand and pet. They sell food and drinks, and have a clean restrooms. I can recommend this zoo for a good day at the park with family and friends

Took a quick trip to this quaint zoo. It was relatively small, and part of the zoo was under construction, so it only took about two hours to get through it. Fun times feeding the giraffes. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Areas appeared very clean and well kept.

We came here to kayak through the zoo because we saw the video on Facebook like everyone else. We booked it even though at the time they weren't taking anybody out due to thunder. They won't give refunds, which is fine, except that they wait every 30 minutes to wait for somebody to radio in a thunder update. The update... More

Our apologies for the negative experience you had visiting us and that you did not get to kayak due to our thunder/lightning policy. We appreciate you bringing your experience to our attention because you should not have been sold a kayaking experience while under a thunder hold since some days it can last a few hours. We have addressed this... More

Definitely plan to feed the giraffes when you go. Great area for young children as well. Get there early to get parking or you will have to walk quite a ways.

Great place for kids and adults alike. Small and personal. Beautiful grounds and well kept enclosures for the animals. We loved feeding the giraffes. We also loved the lagoon area where kids can swim around and adults can wade to cool off.

A nice, inexpensive fun place to take the children. Try their zip line, it is a really fun thing to do.

This is a great zoo with a really fun tree top adventure over the top of many animal exhibits. Zip and climb some challenging obstacles while seeing monkeys, birds, alligators and big cats. If you live in the area consider the annual pass. It's a great deal!

Wonderful zoo with a wide variety of animals. Many are in natural habitat style areas. The giraffe viewing is built up so that you are really able to see them and feed them if you want to! Plan to spend at least a half day to see everything.

We love visiting zoos and have been to Cleveland Zoo, Pittsburgh Zoo, and Zoo Atlanta in the past, as well as recently to Jacksonville Zoo, Central Florida Zoo, and Lowry Park Zoo. While this zoo is on the smaller side, it's a fabulous zoo with friendly folks and is easily done in a few hours (or all day, if you're... More
