“Great zoo, Great Giraffes,”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

We love the Giraffes and always take several dollars to buy the crackers to feed the Giraffes. We head to the giraffes first thing in the morning so they are hungry. It is a bit disappointing later in the day if they don't come up to the platform but there are so many other great animals to see that you soon get over it. The bird aviary is fun. Take a dollar or two for the nectur, it enhances the experience. take some quarters too so you can feed the deer. They are so gentle and sweet.

“if were free it would still cost to much”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

Actually we did go when it was free for locals and I guess I'm just used to some fantastic places but when I was there I was glad I could see it before I paid their admission price

“Not overwhelming and good views of all the wildlife”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

The size is manageable and does not exhaust you. The employees are full of information and they have lots to see and enjoy. It is a great zoo to visit.

“Good Small Zoo”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

This is a great small zoo. It takes about 4 hours to get through. We fed the giraffes and the birds and took the train ride. A note about the birds, if you are even remotely afraid of birds do not feed the laurakeets. It was a bit too cold for the water part when we were there, but it looked clean and big enough for a large number of children to enjoy.
