Our city zoo is a real small town treasure. It is well maintained and a joy to visit. The only fees collected are donations! Well worth a day's visit.

This is one of the few free zoos in the country that's left. It's free, but the donations it gets as well as the other funding is well spent and they manage to keep a nice zoo going. They're in the middle of a bit...More

This zoo is pretty awesome for a small town zoo. We spend lots of time at this Zoo the animals are usually out and usually fun to watch. It's a very family-friendly zoo and it doesn't cost anything. They do accept donations.

As we were in the area on vacation and wanted something to do with our two kids (9 & 3), and thought we would take a visit. In terms of value, you cannot fault free admission (we did leave a voluntary donation). The zoo isn't...More
