It is a small little zoo. Saw animals that I have never seen in person before. Seal show was funny. We had a large school group on the day of our visit which was not great but it happens. Enjoyed it none the less

They have done so many upgrades to this venue. All the upgrades are great. The park was clean and affordable. The seal and snake show was great. Well done to management for turning this park around.

If you like visiting zoos, then this one should definitely be on your list. Entered with less than an hour until closing time and pretty much ran through the place. I will definitely return in the future!
