Wonderful time with our three year old. Kids around this age group will enjoy the exhibits. Loved the farm animals and petting zoo. The weather and the place was an added fun. Will visit again.

Mid to small size zoo. Not so many different cool animals. Had a few things inside which was nice due to rain. Carousel was fun for kids (3-11). Free parking and admit on wed.

I was a little underwhelmed. Admission was $10 and several of buildings were closed for renovation. I knew the zoo was small, but was surprised at how small. On the bright side, you won't get exhausted because it's relatively quick. Some of the spaces seemed overly confining for the animals. Bright spots for me were the Amur leopard and the kangaroos.

I love this local zoo. We have a family membership and you can see lots of lizards, snakes, otters, monkey, bats, peacocks among other animals. It's very clean and you can bring lunch and sit at a picnic table. Don't forget to bring quarters so you cam feed some animals!

5 Stars for a Family of Kangaroos and $2 Courosel Ride (nice one), then just the right size of the zoo that you get to see all the animals without feeling overwhelmed!!! While they have a family of Kangaroos, they don't have a lion and pelicans and the only big cat they have is the Leopard which nowhere to be seen... The aquarium is under renovation, I love the tree that drapes with flowers on the ground at Broadway Entrance... Btw Kangaroos are located at Clove Rd Entrance...
