Great zoo. We took of 12 year old while in town. This zoo the animals look so happy and healthy. Everything was clean! Not a huge zoo but well worth the money and time. Don’t miss out on stopping here!

I have visited this zoo multiple times. I have gone as a child, taken my children and now my grandchildren. My husband and I love to stroll there and stop to look at the animals. The grounds are kept clean. The beautiful live oaks trees provide shade, as well as, a relaxing atmosphere. Kids love the train ride through the park. There is an extra charge for the train ride. The concession stand is reasonably priced in comparison to other zoos or parks. Monkeys are always a favorite with me and the baby is always entertaining. Perfect place to get your stroll, fresh air and unwind.

My family and I recently took a Friday afternoon to take in the zoo. It is a wonderful small zoo and we really enjoyed it

We always enjoy visiting the zoo. It's clean and well maintained. The animals seem to be treated as humanly as can be expected in a zoo. Fun train ride. A bit pricey for a family.

We’ve been to this zoo so many times over the years. We’ve been for multiple field trips and birthday parties and just plain fun. It’s a very quaint zoo and well kept. It’s so much better than the zoo in Lafayette! I would definitely recommend this place.
