The zoo is located in a beautiful setting with a lot of trees for shade from the summer sun. Has a small playground and a large pavilion to rent if you are planning an event for a group.

I was pleasantly surprised at how big this zoo was and at the variety of animals they had. We were there in late August and it was over a 100 degrees. Animals were only interested in shade!
