I love this zoo. The red pandas are cute and the gray wolves outstanding. Other animals that can live in our climate are represented, such as camels, llamas, yaks, etc. The zoo is exceptionally clean and easy to transverse. Do not miss the wolves. I...More

I don't know what I expected, but my friends wanted to go. There weren't very many animals, and it was a very subpar zoo experience. Probably good for kids who haven't been to any decent sized zoos.

This zoo is a gem! I absolutely love it and it's very walkable for young and old alike. I do wish they still had the goats where you could go inside the "pen" with them and pet and feed them . . but oh well....More

Cute little zoo, loved the animals and how you could get close to the enclosures and really see the animals close up, unlike some other zoos where you have to view from behind 2-3 fences.

Not a whole lot to say about this place. It's meh. Would be fun for kids who haven't experienced much else, or to kill an hour or two on a slow weekend. Don't expect much and you might be pleasantly surprised.
