Nice place to visit. They have a lot of different kinds of animals. The place is a little run down could use some fixing up. Animal pens need repair but enjoyed seeing all the animals. Would visit again.

we enjoyed it there. The kids loved it, they really enjoyed feeding the animals. They are in small enclosures but the zoo is kind of like a farm.
