May not be one of the biggest zoos around, though it is well worth the admissions price. Wonderful day spent sterling hand in hand with my boyfriend enjoying the beautiful weather, the frisky animals, the excitement of young children visiting with their parents...absolutely amazing!

Kids of all ages enjoy the zoo. I have been going here for the past 14 years, and I will most likely go for another 14 or more. Always fun to see the animals and their young.

Strong believer in conservation but sadly this zoo left us disappointed - the pens way too small and some of the animals showing signs of restricted patterns

We went on a perfect day...Late fall, weather was partly sunny, on a weekday. It was great to see the Lions so close and to learn so much about the wild life. I learn something new every time I go there.

I went on an overcast afternoon, after it had rained. I was very surprised at how lively and animated the animals were. I was able to see every animal in the zoo. It was amazing! Some of them were quite animated. As I took the...More

Depends on the time of year. This time, it is $12 for an adult, and was $9 for my daughter who is 5. They have a website where they list the pricing and the dates. It's open year round.
