This zoo is very different from other zoos we have visited. We loved that the habitats for the animals were similar to what the animals would have in 'the wild'. Staff were all friendly. The Giraffe exhibit is super cool and the new Australia section...More

This is a great little zoo. I think the admission price is too high. The drink vending machines at the front of the zoo wasn't working. Had to walk half way through the zoo to find the food place to get drinks. They picnic plate...More

Like your animals at home who are active when they wake up in the morning and usually settle down for a nap mid-afternoon, so too do our animals. We recommend visiting anytime between when we open (9:30 a.m.) until 2 p.m.
