This zoo is very well set up. It has a good balance of animals that are interesting for all ages.

Great small zoo. Most of the animals are outside so be sure the weather is right for heading to the zoo. There is a nice collection of farm animals to pet and feed (bring quarters for the feed machines). There is a tram ride available but my 4 year old walked the whole zoo with no problems. There is a great park just outside the parking lot perfect for lunch before or after your trip.
