Anytime I visit the Watertown area I visit the zoo. Great place for families. The animals are well taken care of. The facility is also well taken care of. They grow and make improvements each year.

This zoo is the perfect size for a toddler-not too big and you can get really close to the animals. There's a good variety of animals to see. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were clean. We try to make this an annual stop.
