We try to go once a year with the family. Since my kids are getting older, we go through quite quickly. However, we always seem to find something that keeps us coming back. I’m grateful we have this in the area.

If you haven’t been here, it’s a treasure. Great walking trails; beautiful area with great displays. Fun to feed the ducks... buy many bags of feed as you automatically become a magnet when the ducks hear the crinkle of the small paper bags! Ample parking.

The grounds look great, the place is well maintained, it is just at edge of the city, but a really nice taste of nature. The people here know their stuff and really care about the animals. The building is nice and a good learning experience....More
