We always make a point of stopping here when in the area. The grounds are clean, the animals all look in great condition and the staff is always friendly and helpful.

We love this little zoo and often take our grandchildren. Its a nice little stroll around to see a variety of animals, most that were rescued from either bad situations or places that couldn't keep them.

Smaller zoo, but easy to do in a couple of hours. Lots of children there when we were and they all seemed to enjoy it, too. Had lots of places to sit down to rest and enjoy the animals.

I did not see any there for rental. You would probably have to bring your own. Some brought their own wagons to pull kids in.

It was $12.75 for adults and $9.75 for children (3-12), we used Groupon so it was very reasonable.
