Loved feeding the giraffes!

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

A great Zoo that started out as an animal refuge. They have really done an excellent job in making this a wonderful place to take the kids for a morning or afternoon.

I've been going to this zoo since u was a kid and I loved it then and I love it now! Amazing collection of animals from around the world! The zoo is kinda small when you compare it to zoos in bigger cities but it's a nice effect to be honest. The Africa exhibit containing the rhinos, zebras, and giraffes... More

A wonderful zoo where the animals roam free and many hurt animals are helped. My grandchildren loved the petting zoo and the armadillo.

It's a small zoo, but everything is so close! As someone who grew up going to an extremely large zoo, this is a nice change. There aren't as many animals to see, but the hands on experiences more than make up for it. The giraffes come right up to you for a treat, we loved feeding the lorikeets in the... More
