Don't expect a big zoo, but parking is free and it is relatively inexpensive. Combine the zoo with a picnic by the creek and a drive through the game preserve and it is a great day trip. This is a nice little zoo for little...More

The zoo has many animals that will interest children of all ages. There is a fun play-centre and a fun little gift shop that sells interesting souvenirs. The one down side is the prices. Even the use of the bathroom requires a token.

First off, this is a nice zoo, cages are clean, park is clean. But...it cost $13 to get in, also any additional things you must pay for separately. For example, do you want to feed the giraffe? $4 per person for 2 pieces of lettuce....More
