We visited this park and even donated to it. Looks like they took good care of the animals and it was clean. Love seeing the Eagles. You get to see many different animals. Nice place.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this FREE animal sanctuary and park. It is well maintained and provided lots of information about the animals.
