I'm ambivalent about zoos, but this small, clean, well-kept zoo has a friendly staff and what seems to be sufficient space for the animals they keep. Great for small children, easy to navigate and walk.

This little zoo is a hidden gem. There are lots of interesting animals and the zoo offers several different hands-on experiences with some of the animals. Great place for taking kids or birthday parties.
