Great place for children to see many kinds of animals. My grandson loved feeding the goats, seeing brown bear and other animals.

Took the bride out on a beautiful day. Very nice place. Feed some goats and view all the animals which appear to be very well cared for. There are picnic areas and a pool(separate fee). Nice place to go
