Very well planned out and maintained zoo. Reminded me of a miniature Disney Animal Kingdom. Enclosures are subtle and roomy. Animals seem well cared for and active. Pathways are shady for the guests.

Lovely zoo with natural exhibits and very nice volunteers. Was able to pay to park nearby. Many of the exhibits were closed which was disappointing. The merry go round was also closed as they are repainting the animals.

The park should be easy for someone with a walking disability. There aren't any moving sidewalks, but I believe they have electric wheelchairs to get around.
