“Best Free Zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

This is a great free zoo and they keep the grounds pretty. My husband and I enjoyed the animals and the flowers. Great place to go to.

“Small, but good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Very small, easily seen in a half hour. Lots of cages, but all are pretty good. Landscaping througout the zoo is probably its best feature. Be sure not to miss the larger animals accross the street!

“What a nice place to visit on a pleasnt afternoon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2012

What a great enjoyable surprise pleasure! We were in town for a wedding, and were looking for something to do for a couple of hours. I was not too thrilled from the website, but we ended up there anyway, after seeing the college campus (which took 3 minutes). Seeing that it was a free zoo...I was not ready to be impressed.

Then we arrived. What a beautiful place!! Pleasant walkways...everything looks new, even though the zoo has been around for some time. There was plenty of shade for the hot day...and a pleasant breeze. My daughter loved walking around seeing the animals, and we had a very enjoyable time. Highly recommend if you are looking to kill an hour or so!
