It's fun to monkey around in this zoo that features such renowned exhibits as the "Great Ape," "Big Cat Habitat" and "Red Panda."

Took 4 kiddos, 4 thru 14, and they all had a fun day. There's a large variety of animals to see. The kids especially enjoyed the penguins and the monkeys. I love the elephants! The zoo was clean and well maintained.

This place is a typical small town zoo. They have all the typical things you would expect to find at a zoo, nothing spectacular. They do have a Carousel though that is awesome!! The food etc was pricey and ok. It just needs something!!

This was my 2nd visit. The zoo is very clean. Animals are well cared for and not hard to see. They have a good season pass for families so they can come often. The kids loved the penguins and naked mole rats.

You will need at least a good four hours if you want to take your time and enjoy the zoo.

We were there early in morning and most everything was out. I believe the hot time of the day they go to the coolest spot.
