It's a moderate sized zoo, but still nice, quaint, and inexpensive. I enjoyed the train ride to touring the perimeter. Just a nice place to go for the afternoon and have a picnic in the park.

This little zoo is a gem for children 6 and under. It provides a nice array of exhibits and is just the right size for children to enjoy without being exhausted. They also have a nice little spray park for the kids to enjoy. Very clean and attractive facility. I give it an A+

This is a small zoo, but it's not very expensive to get in and they have a splash pad and quite a bit of animals so for the money you really get a lot. They are also making a lot of updates right now so I believe it will only get better and better.

Disappointed! Just very small and nothing much to do or see. Best part was kids played in the water fountains and had fun!
