Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is what a well-loved zoo should look like.. Easy walking and wonderful exhibits. Much attention has been paid to the welfare of the animals and it shows.

“A Zoo Lovers Delight”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

A wonderful visit for both young and old alike. We recently visited the San Diego Zoo so we were not expecting this visit to be anything special, BUT WE WERE WRONG. THIS PLACE WAS EXCELLENT AND EVERY BIT AS ENJOYABLE AS OUR VISIT TO SAN DIEGO. If you like zoos, this is a really nice place to visit.

“Small charming zoo”
Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed the quaint size and how close one can get to the animals. What a fun time for our group of adults. Would recommend for families with smaller children, for it would not be too long.

“Very Nice Zoo”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

I've been to many and this one ranks up there with the best. Especially the elephant exhibit which is really cool. There is much to see at this zoo so take your time when you go so you see it all.

“Not one of the best, but children enjoy it”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We have been to many around the country, so we have been spoiled. We were not expecting too much from this zoo, but kids seem to enjoy it. It did seem a little overpriced for how it was. There is a giraffe encounter where to pay to feed them, and it seemed very popular. The line was long and the giraffes seemed uninterested. Though there is a great lookout to see them and you do get fairly close, much more so than most places. There is not much that really stands out about this zoo. It is worth visiting, but it is not one of the better ones.
