The wildlife sanctuary is a great place to learn about and see the local animals. They take care of injured animals and attempt to rerelease them back in the wild. This is a great place for kids. No charge, but the ask for a donation.

Free and just a lovely place to spend my lunch hour at the picnic tables then take a walk around to see the animals. It is so peaceful and if you wish to leave a donation you may.

Smaller than the zoo, able to spend more time and get closer to the animals. Free (we always make a donation). They have educational shows. The kids love it. Most of it is shaded, so not too hot.

Kim K gave the best answer. There are some areas that are only accessed by stairs but most are wood chips and narrow- prob just wide enough for a wheelchair but not easy to navigate because of the surface.
