For a family reunion of about 20 people we went here. GREAT experience, both the kids and adults loved it. We covered it in about 2 and a half hours, and saw lots of cool animals. Don't miss the reptile house.

We had a great day! Family of 6, very economical since the cost to get in is a donation. Zoo was clean and animals looked well cared for. Food and drinks were pretty expensive, $2.70 for a water bottle, but remember it was no charge...More
