You can't beat the price because it's free. Not a huge zoo but still pretty awesome for a free zoo. The have a concession stand with cheap snow cones. 50 cents or $1 for a large. Hard to beat killing some time here. I'd go back!

This little zoo is wonderful! The beautiful little lake is great for picnics and feed the ducks and geese. The animals are well cared for and the park is beautiful! It is free and a wonderful place to hang out with your family!

Like others have stated, there aren't a lot of animals here, but it is free. The train and carousel are fun and only 50 cents a ride. It's a big area, and lots of grass to have your picnics. I'd never seen a white peacock before coming here, absolutely beautiful. Kids enjoyed the playground area and cooled off with snowcones... More

Not bad for a small zoo. Many animals common to my back yard, not so exotic here. Too many prairie dogs! Lovely park.

I stopped by the park to take a walk after my workday. I saw on the GPS that there was a zoo at the park, but I figured it cost. When I got to the park, I was surprised to find the zoo free. It was a little run down and many of the cages were empty, but I was... More

This little zoo was a quick stop to kill time, but it's definitely not like some other bigger ones I've been too. Great for smaller kids, and it's free so why not.

I saw a goat type animal that appeared lame. Kids were feeding them anything they could get their hands on. Most enclosures were reasonable but i was saddened by the two black bears. They pace next to the disgusting water in their pen. One walks across, throws her head back and walks back all day long. The other tags behind... More

The neighborhood surrounding the park are a bit run down but it was great weather to spend some time outdoors. A few bad points... The restrooms were filthy and the stench was horrible. Thank God I had plenty of bleach wipes, and febreeze in my backpack. The playground was old and outdated and the one swing was broken. The miniature... More

We spent a few hours in the UFO Museum and wanted to have a picnic close by. We drove maybe 3 miles down the road and stopped at Spring River Park to grab a table and enjoy our picnic. A few people were riding their bikes on the path. Others were walking the black topped path. It was very clean... More
