The park and zoo are always being updated. There are hiking trails, 4 playgrounds, exotic animals, birds and a petting zoo, tennis courts, a volleyball pit and several large and small picnic areas. We also enjoy the scenic views.

Awesome Christmas lights! Horse drawn wagon ride is the best! I’d never seen the lights and to take the ride was so fun. You can walk or drive through as well. Either is fun, too!

Yes the park is open and you can have dogs as long as they are on a leash and you clean up after them. They don't allow them in the animal buildings as it may upset the animals.
