After 3 super fun trips to the zoo this year already, we decided to join. I am excited to see the newly renovated aquarium when its finished! My son loves to chase after the chickens! Lots of fun summer afternoons will be spent here.

Visited on a sunny but cool day in April. Wasn't sure what to expect with 8 acres, but the layout & indoor versus outdoor habitats was well-distributed. The kids (11 & 13) loved it too.

This is a great place to spend a lazy afternoon. One of the largest reptile collections will be found here, along with many other unusual animals.

Go often with my 2 year old granddaughter. She loves it especially the carousel and when animals are out for a close up experience petting them.

This is a perfectly good zoo for very young children to be excited about. They do have some programs for older youth to help actually do volunteer work, but its limited. Nice if your local, but I wouldn't travel far to see it.

I always enjoy visiting this zoo either with my family, friends or on a class trip. It's never too crowded and they always have a great selection of animals. I heard the boo at the zoo is amazing but books up fast.
