Due it’s not being huge, this is the perfect place for families with small children. Older children and adults will also be entertained by the diverse wildlife.

I use an electric scooter for travel and this zoo proved easy for me to get around. The bison exhibit is my favorite. The prairie dog area is fun for children. We're members and we visit many zoos.
