This is a great little zoo to walk around only $2.00 admission charge. Lots of animals and birds to see. The petting barnyard is really a treat. I certainly would recommend.

We did a few hours here on a family outing over the weekend. It's a great little zoo where all the animals were visible and the staff was friendly. The small selection of animals that they have to visit really encompasses what is indigenous to...More
