Took our 2.5 year old grandson . Nice facility very clean and plenty of parking during the week. I think 60 to 90 minutes here is about right. There is a charge for entrance but they have senior citizens discount and under 3 free.

Great little zoo close to home. This by no means is a big park. Nice splash pad and playground, this is great for younger kids.

This zoo was very small only took us one hour to go thru but it had a nice selection of animals and we did enjoy it. if you have an hour to spend this zoo would be a great place to spend it.

Lions are just the beginning. All sorts of animals, food, information, and playgrounds. If you have kids, it's a great place to bring the kids on the cheap and spend lots of time looking at all the animals!

When you pull into the main entrance, stay to the left towards the zoo and there is plenty of parking there.

I was told that my water bottle was ok to bring in, just no food. They also sell water at the zoo in the lobby and have a vending machine of drinks closer to the Lemurs.
