I highly recommend going to this zoo. It is small, but it's just the right size if you're looking for something to do with your kids for an hour or so. Always love visiting!

The zoo is pretty small but is very affordable and is very well done! Lots is packed into a small space. The animals seem very well cared for. It’s clean and great fun for families.

Was really hot that day. Most animals had found any available shade trying to stay cool and could not be seen - understandable. Zoo was clean and well kept. Employees were pleasant. My wife had a slot experience which made the visit great. Good place...More
