It is a unique feature for such a small town to have it's own zoo. There are a variety of animals to visit in a calm setting. It is true that some of the exhibits are antiquated by modern standards, but the city of Clay...More

Let me start by saying I'm from UP STATE New York (IE, not the city). I've seen some gigantic zoo's, and some pretty small ones. This zoo might be adequate size for a small zoo, if all of it was dedicated to the animals. It's...More
