Smaller than most, but it is very relaxing to walk around. I am a senior and my wife and I loved taking a casual walk throughout the zoo. Great way to spend a few hours.

A very small zoo. Great for a half a day visit. Recently remodeled. Not very big animals. Great to walk around for kids.

My family and I enjoy this zoo. It has a little of everything. Safari animals, sea life and forest animals. It has a famous carousel that we ride over and over again. The zoo may seem small but it has a lot to offer. One of our favorite places to visit that is close to home. We never get tired of going.

I can't say how many times we visited this zoo, but it is at least ones in the season :-) This zoo is small, but nice. You can pet farm animals such as sheep, goats and lama for 50 cents through the fence or pay $3 and go closer to them behind the fence. Zoo has small variety of animals outside and more inside. Now inside area of the zoo is closed for renovation. Zoo has nice carousel for kids $2 and also each weekend they do a performances with small animals where kids can get more information about animals and pet them.

We had a grand time seeing the animals. This is a small zoo, and we spent a very nice 2 hours here. Our favorite animals were the Amur leopard who sat on a rock staring at everyone passing by, the baby lemurs who leaped about playing and the snake that tried (and almost succeeded) to climb to the top of its glass case. We actually came here to ride the carousel. It’s a very interesting one made by Carousels and Carvings in Marion, OH. While the animals aren’t as refined as the ones made by Carousel Works, they are still beautiful and fun to ride.
