This is a cute little zoo with a small time feel. Staff were all friendly and the animals were well cared for. It was very hot, and they had plenty of cooling off places for the guest to experience.

Very pleasantly surprised how big the Zoo was, and how many attractions they had. I enjoyed the fountains you can go get into to cool off. I was very impressed.

I’d never been to this particular zoo before. Even though it was extremely hot out, we had a great time! There are quite a few “misting fans” around to get cooled off. There’s also a splash pad. The staff was friendly. There’s a digital board...More

The zoo is pretty small but is very affordable and is very well done! Lots is packed into a small space. The animals seem very well cared for. It’s clean and great fun for families.
