Many different species to see and very clean! A good variety of animals for a small city. We had a summer pass and used it often! Prices are reasonable as well.

Brought the kids here and they really enjoyed themselves. The zoo is quite large, with many many animals to see. Inexpensive as well. They have vending machines all over the park, which is great as children get very thirsty walking around.

Hello I would call ahead to book as the zoo is very busy during the summer with both visitors to the area and locals attending as well. I am not sure if they are shared or single kennels. Hope you enjoy the trip

We do not allow dogs in the zoo and have kennels in a shaded area free of charge. If the puppy is very young we can keep him/her in the office in a kennel while you visit the zoo.
