Simple and small, many animals reside in well arranged homes, with all the amenities of the jungle or forest.

We checked it out to kill some time before a wedding. It took about an hour to cover everything. I found it boring, but my stepson and wife had a good time.

Very suitable for children. It will hold their attention for the short while it takes to go through.

This zoo is next to a park. If you have a family or even if you do not, this is a great stop. The zoo is small, however it is clean and easy to navigate. The kids were really excited about seeing and learning about the variety of animals. There is a small gift shop and plenty of opportunities to take pictures. After you visit the zoo let the kids play on the playground next to the zoo. The park even has a small lake that you can walk to. Easy parking and easy to return to your trip.

I have taken my grandchildren to this zoo several times over the years because I have found it be a good venue to expose the kids to animals they may not see anywhere else. I particularly enjoy taking them by the Tiger cage and letting them gaze incredibly at the beautiful tiger on display. I have also been pleasantly surprised at how well the recent upgrades and improvement in zoo facilities turned out. This is a nice little zoo that won't break your wallet getting in with the little one's.
