“Great family entertainment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

This is a great place to take your little kids to. They have quite a variety of friendly animals to look at: boars, guinea pings, all kinds of fowl, goats, camels, and even ponies you can pet. They provide food to give the animals at vending machines. They also have a unique play area where children can play, including a barn buggy and decorative life size cows where kids can stand on, besides the standard swings, slides, etc. The park also has lots of grassy area with picnic tables and grills where families can barbecue and family or friends picnics. A very lovely and peaceful place. This place has been there for many years, but it has only become what it's now in the last 2-3 years.

“Nice and Quaint”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Don't expect and overr the top traditional zoo. This is a simple mom and pop operation and veru casual affair. During the winter and the holiday lights there are reindeer.
