Reviewed 29 December 2011

We enjoyed the zoo with the grandchildren. It is the right size for a young family to visit.

“Small, but nice”
Reviewed 22 December 2011

This is a nice, small zoo that is great for a quick visit. There are enough animals to check out to keep the kids happy, but can be done pretty quickly. Also, save some change for the petting zoo and gift shop. There is also an area for eating lunch and riding coin-operated cars.
