This is a very well kept Zoo. The admission price is very reasonable. The staff is extremely nice. Git to see the seal pick the NFL games for the week.

The staff always seems friendly and caring at this zoo. This is one case where smaller is better. We were able to see animals being fed and were given information on the animal's behaviors and age by staff. It is very noticeable that the staff knows and cares about the animals. The layout of the zoo allows you to walk... More

Not only is the zoo itself a jewel in our town, it's nestled in a wonderful city park full of activities that appeal to all age ranges.

Love this place. Surprisingly big and varied collection for such a small town. Today's highlights were the Sumatran tiger, playing with a dangling toy, and 3 snow leopard cubs (born in May?). We saw the seals and otters being fed. The seals cooperated sometimes and other times tried to snatch others' fish instead of laboring through their tricks.

This family-friendly zoo has it all --bears, reindeer, a Sumatran tiger, snow leopards, gibbons, red wolves and now flamingos. It's compact size makes it great for small children. It's easy to traverse and there are surprises hidden at every turn. You can tell the animals are happy and well-cared for, and the staff is super knowledgeable and friendly. And don't... More
