“Come here at least 3-4 times over the summer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

It is a hour away from us, but my daughter loves coming here. Animals are kept nice and park is clean. Daughter loves the train ride and the water park. The play ground has been expanded for more play time. Lots of shade for those really hot days.

“Excellent cheap family entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

This is a great little zoo - lots of animals, clean, small enough that kids of all ages can walk the whole thing. They even have a splash park and a playground. Its a perfect venue to get out and spend the day with the family. The people who work there are friendly and knowledgable as well.

Best of all - it's FREE!!

Its even fun for adults!

“Good quick stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Not bad for a small park and zoo. This is a great place to stretch your legs and see some animals or even take a miniature train ride.

“A fine little local zoo.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

The park is nice. The big slide was the kids' favourite part. The animals look well cared for and the whole place seems well run and quite humane. Maybe the bigger animals could use a bit more habitat but that's just my feeling about captivity for animals. The little train ride is nice for little kids but not that exciting for anyone over say, seven. Nicely kept, worth the visit since the area is mostly a private cottagey water recreation mecca.
