Perfect for families with little ones. You can get in and out in a short amount of time and they still have larger and neat animals.

This is a small zoo but it has many interesting exhibits. It is very inexpensive and they have promotional and holiday events throughout the year.

Small zoo that is easy for little kids to walk. Animals range from Tiger to hissing cockroaches. The entire zoo is a couple of city blocks long. The bird sanctuary is pretty neat.

The zoo was located very close to our hotel. The entrance cost is minimal. The zoo is small but displayed nicely. You were able to enjoy the animals and see them quite clearly. It was a very nice change and I enjoyed the visit.

My great niece has a thing for flamingos but had never actually seen a real one. It was a dream come true for her. We bought about everything you had in the gift shop that was a flamingo

There's a small area inside the zoo to eat where you can bring your own food. There is more room immediately outside the zoo near the splash pad/playground as well.
