Enjoyed a first visit here with friends. A good assortment of animals. The darkened 'nocturnal animals' house was very interesting. Felt a bit concerned about the small size of some of the enclosures.

A very nice little zoo. Appropriate for very young children. The splash pad was an attractive feature on a hot day. It was a bit more pricey than I expected. Disappointed that 'young' grandparents do not qualify for a 'senior' discount.

Love this park. Clean. Cages are clean, although some are quite small. Decent lunch food. Good location. Gets very crowded on weekends.

Great little zoo for a quick trip. We took our grand daughter here on our way to another event. She LOVED it.

It's a nice small zoo, but we had fun there. The people were helpful and explained the animals as we visited different areas. It doesn't take too long to go through this zoo, but it's worth the trip. It's located in a park.

Military discount which was great. Just the right size for taking a toddler. The splash pad area was nice, but wish parents watched their older kids better as they were squirting little kids in the face and making them cry.

When you pull into the main entrance, stay to the left towards the zoo and there is plenty of parking there.
