“Family-friendly zoo with lots of fun things to do”
“Love how close it is, free parking, great playground. Reasonable member pricing compared to other zoos. The animals were great and really seemed well cared for. This small zoo has personality and great staff who care about what they are doing.”
“Very nice zoo. A smaller zoo, but well worth the visit. Reasonable ticket prices, especially if taking the family. Free parking. Lots of area of interest for families with small children. There is a pretty zoo and musical garden for younger children. But still very enjoyable for adults. Friendly animals and staff. Clean bathrooms. Would highly recommend a visit.”
“Very cute boutique zoo. It shows that the staff care about the animals. They offer great venues for events!”
