My kids love the ZOO and we try to visit often. Our little girl really loves every visit there and loves the playground with big fake snake. A really cool attraction right here in our neighborhood.

Although the zoo is small it is a nice day out for the kids, and even the adults. It is a nice place to visit and see the animals.
