Who doesn't love to see all the amazing animals in the world. This place has a wide selection Plus the zip line is something fun for the kids and young adults and lets not kid ourselfs Grandma would look all some.

We generally like taking the kids to this zoo, but there are a few things to be aware of. Food service is painfully slow, and u can only feed the animals until the allocated food is gone. So, show up early and eat lunch ahead of the crowd.

There is lots to do here besides visiting the animals. The Zip Lines, Bungee Jump and Walking on Water and the splash zone are all fun and will wear any kid out. Bring lots of cash.
Parking seems limited, even though we got there late in the day when most of the crowd died down, parking was still a hastle. Overall I recommend this zoo to anyone in the area, just try to arrive early as you won't be able to feed the animals after a certain time.

Great little zoo! So much to see and the hot dogs were yummy too! We didn't do any of the adventure stuff (zip line) but we really enjoyed the educational snake show!

This is a great local zoo! It's not huge, but it's great for our community and my son always has fun there.
Also, in response to the reviewer that says that it's depressing. This zoo is currently supported by donations, not tax dollars. Maybe put your money where your mouth is and contribute a little bit?
