We loved visiting all the animals inside the Zoo. We especially loved the otters. We went on a Friday and it was very quiet.

A great well maintained zoo. Great to walk through, and wasn't too crowded. It was actually relatively peaceful for a zoo. It's not a huge zoo, but definitely large enough to keep a toddler entertained. Admission was very reasonable as well. Overall a good time!
