My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our day at this zoo. You could tell all the animals were happy and healthy. It was a bit disappointing how many exhibits were under construction, but that just gives all the more reason to return in the future

We had a great time. The zoo has a small intimate feel with just the perfect amount of animals to see for young children. They are currently adding a new exhibit to the back of the zoo.

This is a cute little zoo for if you're in town visiting. The animals appear to be well taken care of and the facility is clean. We go several times a year and definitely recommend to others!

No fee for parking. If you plan on going on the weekends, I recommend getting there at opening time or before as the parking lots fill up fast.

I remember there were a lot of indoor facilities. Though we've never been there in Winter, I can imagine it would be a nice trip in the winter to see the indoor displays and animals.
