We went on saturday what a great local event. The zoo does a great job. This is not an over priced event and is very well down. Suggestion - buy your tickets in advance as the lines can get long.

Great, clean zoo to take young children. Not too big. Don't forget to bring extra clothes and pack a lunch to play in the stream and picnic afterwards!

The zoo is clean and well maintained. The animals seem to be comfortable and happy. It is a small zoo, so it is perfect for little ones who might tire in a larger zoo. Be sure to hand feed their pair of giraffes. It's an...More
