This zoo has a lot of animals for a small zoo. You can feed giraffes. They also have a meerkat colony. Train Ride is small, but kids will love it.

Like your animals at home who are active when they wake up in the morning and usually settle down for a nap mid-afternoon, so too do our animals. We recommend visiting anytime between when we open (9:30 a.m.) until 2 p.m.
