My family and I love this place!!!! We like that there are so many different sections and that they are always improving it. The gibbons are our favorite always so active. We also love the little kids area.

This is a cute little zoo and aquarium that is very family friendly. The families are able to get a good view of the animals without endangering them. The aquarium is very cool! It was crowded, but you were able to move around.

Had a good time. Brought the grandkids who were visiting from Rhode Island. Plenty to see and do. Nice that you can go outside to see some animals or go in and see the exhibits.
