It was a great experience with the kids, we had attended a company breakfast with the bunnies on Easter time. The interaction with the animals and of course the gift shop with the kids is a must. We enjoyed our time visit!

Smaller than I thought it would be. Kids liked it. We went on a cool day and not many animals were out or active. I guess I just expected more because people raved about it. Probably spent about 1.5hours there.

Nicely laid out, the zoo is a great place to walk and see many animals. The animals are well cared for.

Very nice zoo and very well kept. We got through it in under 2 hrs but could have stayed longer (daughter was getting restless). Would recommend this zoo to others. We aren't zoo snobs but thought it was nice d reasonably priced too.

This was a great zoo. There were so many different animals! This would be good for all ages not just children. Go and expect to spend two hours.
