Lovely morning spent visiting a quaint and walkable mini zoo. Off the beaten track, this is a nice place to visit with, or without your children. Highlights include the energetic Meetcats, inquisitive Porcupines and rumbling Armadillos. Dedicated staff make your visit a memorable one.

We were staying in nearby Berwick and decided to head here for an afternoon with our 3 year old. Plenty to see and do, as others have said it is more of a farm park, but I much prefer this over large crowded zoos and...More
