Cheap admission and great animals. The Red Panda alone is worth the visit. Unlike most zoo's, you can actually see most of the animals.

We seniors think this zoo is the perfect size as we visited from out of town. We had a couple of hours to see the creatures, and that is all one really needs. Wonderful zoo with a caring staff.

The zoo was a great way to spend a few hours. The animals seem happy and content in their environment. It's not a huge zoo, but has a great variety of well kept animals!

What a surprise! We were very impressed with the zoo’s many species and how well maintained and pleasant the surroundings were. The keepers were very friendly and took time to talk with us about the animals. Great value for families. Highly recommended.

This zoo is on the smaller side but lots of exhibits. It was a nice walk around. It’s not spread out over miles like some places. Staff we seen were friendly and would talk about the animals they were caring for. It’s not very expensive...More
