“Brew at the Zoo!”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

The Zoo is a great place to take your family, but once a year for Brew at the Zoo, it becomes a must-do for anyone that enjoys the microbreweries of the area. Enjoy food and craft beers while walking around and looking at all the animals.

“Fun in Summer or Winter”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

We have been twice - to Zoolights in the winter, and in the spring during the daytime. Very nice zoo, well laid out, the animals appear well cared for and they have a nice aquarium as a bonus.

“Spend a day!”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

I have carried the Grandkids out there at least once a mounth for the past three years & never get tired of the experience. Zoo is well kept & animals are well kept & seen in beautiful surroundings. there are many activities year round. Halloween is always a special time as is Christmas with thousands of lights. I have been to many Zoos over the years & rate this one right at the top. June will be a very special time this year as the new Elephant area will be complete & open to the public. You will enjoy the experience!

“A great time!”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

I love the zoo! It's a lot of fun and the kids love it. My kids are 5 and 6 so it's more than we can see in a day. The bathrooms are conveniently located and there is variety of food options.
