Nothing here was too special, but it was a nice way to spend an afternoon while visiting my sister. Lots of small children were having a ball. Perfect for them since it is a small zoo.

This is a small zoo but very nice for the family, especially with young children. The Reindeer Festival during Christmas is terrific and a must see.

We knew the zoo was relatively small so we didn't schedule too much time to visit. We arrived around 3 and the zoo was going to be closing at 4:30. Some of the animals were already "gone for the evening". But we did see cougars,...More
