Nice variety of animals. If you live up here it's nice to have a zoo close by. Children would love it as you can get close up. They have farm animals too..be sure to check groupon for savings!

Pretty quiet day at the zoo. Enjoyed the feeding of the Tiger. Warm October day, so most critters laying in the shade.

we really enjoyed our visit. We were there right at opening and they were cleaning enclosures and feeding, so we were able to see many of the animals eating. It's also a very nice walk!

They take great care of the animals. It is also a great place to spend time with family. They have a play ground for kids too. Make sure and see the tiger feeding.

We spent about an hour there. As others have noted, it is a very small zoo, and no food is available. And definitely go in the morning during the summer!
