Owner description: Small zoo that features more than 45 mammals and birds on display.

This small zoo is just south of downtown in Wright Park, easily walkable from there, and is well worth a visit. For such a small zoo they have a surprisingly large selection of animals, all kept in good surroundings and obviously well looked after. Bison, tigers, wolves, longhorn cattle, black bears, llamas, all sorts!

If you want to be scared, stand near the tiger cage when someone with a stroller walks behind you!

Even better, it's totally free! Make sure you give a donation to help keep it running.

It's not big by any means,but it's clean and not busy. It's free and has quite a variety of animals. We enjoyed our visit. If in the area we will visit again, Thanks for all you do with animals!

It's a nice zoo for kids and family. They have a lot of different animals and everyone must go at least once.

This is a small zoo but it is very clean and well maintained. Plenty of good shaded areas to cool off. It appears they are doing a lot of expansion. No admission charge! The pot belly pig was our favorite!!! Also, right outside the zoo entrance is a BIG play area for the kids.
