This is a cute little zoo for if you're in town visiting. The animals appear to be well taken care of and the facility is clean. We go several times a year and definitely recommend to others!

Zoo is very clean and unique. Great park like setting. Great play area for kids with a stream to splash in a play ground. Good exhibits. Interactive. Worth a trip.

Wide range of animals in natural environments. Would recommend a visit duriing nice weather since many of the animals are outside. Small outside snack bar. Free parking. Bring your camera. Should be able to see everything in 2 hours or less.

Been visiting the zoo for 30 years with the kids and always wish the primates had a nicer place. They say it is being planned, but I've heard that for years. Otherwise a small zoo that takes about an hour to see.

I remember there were a lot of indoor facilities. Though we've never been there in Winter, I can imagine it would be a nice trip in the winter to see the indoor displays and animals.
