I have a special place in my heart for this zoo and ajoining park. I came upon it driving to visit family. Loved the zoo and it became a meeting place for my family.

This is a nice little zoo and a good pit stop for little kids to stretch their legs. Bring quarters for the petting zoo.

Great way to break up the day with some youngsters. Never crowded and have some great animals to check out. The conditions look better than most small zoos I've seen. Also fairly quick. It's a challenge to spend more than 90 minutes. Fun petting zoo...More
