It's a nice outing for small kids. It has a train ride and carousel, and is pretty well kept. Ideal for kids!

It was shaded and there are cooling fans every where. The animals are limited but for $5 you can enjoy a nice variety.

Okay so it's quite small with a limited number of animals, but it's only $5 so it's absolutely worth it. There's a new wallaby walkabout where you can mingle with a couple of animals and there's a goat petting area. The tiger and jaguar look...More
