This is a very nice zoo to visit, especially considering the remodeling that they have been working on. I would recommend planning on the whole day so that you are not rushed. Some of the places tend to get pretty stinky in the heat of...More

It closes at 6pm and we got there at 5pm so we rushed through the zoo in just one hour. But you can spend the entire day there. You can eat there; there's areas for kids to play and they looked like they were having...More

It is always fun to go to the zoo whether you are a child or adult. Is not a huge zoo, so it doesn’t take all day to visit. I love to visit zoos so I have been to several. This is a smaller one...More

Thank you for the review. Our Zoo is considered a mid-size Zoo at 42-acres. Sometimes animal activity has more to do with time of day. We're glad your kids had a good time (and hopefully learned something : )

Reviewed August 18, 2018 via mobile

For a smaller zoo this place is packed with all of the best animals. We really enjoyed seeing the Polar bears, Red Pandas and many different big cats. This zoo is well laid out and very clean and we really enjoyed our visit.

The animals didn’t have much room to move. The Gorilla structure was very small, as was the leopard and tiger structures. Both the leopard and tigers seemed highly agitated,quickly pacing back and forth; and the tiger was very vocal during its pacing. The animals have...More

No this is not the same caliber of some zoos and parking can be an issue but it makes for a great thing to do on a lazy afternoon or evening. The animals seem well cared for and the park was clean and kept up...More

My family and I went to the zoo for the Christmas Zoo lights. We had a great time even though it was freezing cold. Would recommend to everyone.
