I think the animals should be put in a larger zoo. There isn't much space for them to live. I left feeling sad for them.

I was disgusted by what I have seen at this zoo. To start you can feed the animals without any staff supervision (giraffes and deer) and I witnessed things being fed that are defiantly going to lead to health problems but visitors think this is...More

A nice selection of animals with some you can feed. Kids enjoyed it. Some animals had nice big areas but some of the enclosures seem a little too confining. If the animals/birds all had nice big spaces it would be 5 out of 5.

Little nice zoo in the middle of the country not too far from Barrie. Very good for children and it is nice how close you get to some animals.

I have no idea the type of goats they have.. They're just your standard goat you see in petting zoos. they range from really small to full grown.
