I just cant say enough about this small zoo. It is not new but you really feel close to the animals and the staff is second to none! It is well worth spending an afternoon there!

This zoo though hard to find was very nice. Parking was free but the parking lot was already overflowing when we arrived so we parked about one block away on the street. This is a small zoo perfect for little legs and feet. Price was good considering the size and we got in for 1/2 price with our Maryland Zoo membership. They had a huge Tiger and a smaller white tiger both in clear view. The zoo is home to two lions and the best part of our visit was when one of the lions began to roar over and over again AWESOME!! The zoo also has a community park in front of it perfect for an all day outing pack a lunch and let the kiddies play!

This is a nice zoo although. I prefer to go to the Lincoln park zoo as it is free. For a local zoo it is nice. The times that I have been there though the zoo seems to not have many people visiting. Sad :( Maybe it is because of the prices to get in.
