Reviewed March 9, 2014

We went here during a Fourth of July trip last year. Lots of animals to see and an easy place to walk around.

“Small Zoo Good attractions”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

It has a lot to offer considering the size. Its not like the major zoos in the US but thats ok. You can get through quickly and not feel like you have to spend the day. I do wish they would get rid of the Chickens and Goats. There are some spots you will want to watch where you step.

“Our favorite zoo.”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

We love this smaller zoo, it is easy to get in and out of. The animals are great, the giraffes are there to feed and touch. The ski lift is very exciting ride up and definitely have your camera. Most animals were out and about. This zoo is also very clean and you can spend a short time or hours there. It is worth the trip.

“It's for Everyone!!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

I love this zoo because they have done so many improvements for the animals sake. The location on the mountain makes for a great hike (not strenuous) and views. The Electric Safari at Christmas time is romantic and fun too. It's a good size zoo for a half or full day excursion.
