Fun for the whole family, beautiful flowers and landscaping, close up to all the animals. Impressive for a small zoo.

The zoo is a great place to take the family. They have a variety of animals, put on some sun block because there is not enough shade.

The zoo was awesome. There were a lot of awesome exhibits, and everything was clean and not smushed together, which is good. Fyi, though, the animals sleep. A lot.
