Dirty facilities, understaffed, lack of amenities, all the animal enclosures are run down and tiny. All the animals look sad. Please don't waste your money, maybe they will get shut down or upgrade.

We took our two year old grandson and there was lots to do and see. Many interactive demonstrations. Lots of wildlife be prepared to walk. Take a good push chair for the little ones, mainly gravel . Six dollars for parking over and above admission.
