Very well kept zoo. Animals appeared well cared for. Many displays were interactive. Lots of things for children and adults to enjoy.

We're zoo members and we love this little zoo! The animal exhibits are set up for the animals, not the humans! So you may have to wait to see something or may not see it at all; however, the animals are well cared for, which should be the mission of the zoo in the first place. We love the exhibits as they seem geared toward keeping the animals active, happy, engaged and healthy. Photo opportunities here are very good! I've traveled to zoos across the country and this one has excellent places to get up close photos. The food and drink prices are exorbitant, but if they help the animals and the zoo stay open, I'm ok with it. We usually pack a picnic lunch and eat just outside the gift shop. There are picnic tables and bathrooms right outside the main entrance. Many of the exhibits have volunteers who have been with the zoo for over ten years and have extensive knowledge of the animals.

Great place for the family. We had a blast and cannot wait to return ! We were required to wear a mask and it was a hot day. We are going back when the weather cools some. One of staff members was a bit rude by the giraffe area, not sure if she was having a bad day but she did not have to be nasty when i asked her a question. Other than that its a lovely place for the family.

An extra fee for online payment (not optional) on top of a pricey zoo entrance fee, not cool. The zoo is an excited adventure, but with a family of eight its unaffordable. This is even an expensive date night adventure. I'm very disappointed.

We were so impressed with this gem of a little zoo. They were one of the very few zoos accepting reciprocity for other AZA zoo members. Staff and volunteers were unbelievable, just an outstanding wealth of knowledge. I actually went multiple times in a week. I suggest early morning visits because the animals are actually out. I went in the afternoon and they were hot, their enclosures were being cleaned, or just sleeping in tunnels. The monkey exhibit was fantastic. You feel like you’re in their enclosure because you are so close and they have all of these open tunnels the animals can use above you. Really well designed. My children really enjoyed the aviaries and the kangaroo exhibit. They had two baby joeys. The staff went out of their way at every single exhibit to teach my children and interact with them. We loved the bridges with the crocodile and alligators. We weren’t old enough to use the zip lines, but they had people on them. The giraffe lettuce feeding area was also a huge hit with our family. $2 a lettuce leaf and very friendly giraffes (and staff). We saw the splash pad but passed. The petting zoo was also hands off with Covid. We did not try the food but you can bring some small snacks for children. Plenty of shaded areas. I think it takes about 2.5 hours to circle the zoo. We absolutely loved it!
