If I have to be perfectly honest, I feel like "roadside zoos" should be closed down all together. The habitats for these animals are so small that it's more like visiting a sad animal shelter than going to visit a zoo. There's no shade and...More

Love this place and all the things you can do there. You can ride the train and go in a bird cage and feed the birds. Lot animals you can interact with and the place is amazingly clean

Hi, We are needing a sun free day to recover from sunburns. Is this mainly shaded or in full sun? Thanks!

Sorry I just saw this. Not much shade at this zoo. It's cute, close animal views and worth seeing but not much shade. 😊
What does parking cost?

Parking is free, if you park along the fence (nearest the highway) you can also score some shade!
Is this near destin?
