We visited the Zoo Sanctuary and had a good time walking around looking at the animals and reading their stories. Right next door is the miniature train that you can ride on. Fun place for all ages.

very small but 100% perfect for little ones! Also there is a little steam engine train for 5 bucks that goes around the zoo
