We love the splash pad here, such a great thing to add to the zoo! I recommend getting a boat ticket to see quiet a few animals you wouldn't be able to see from just walking around. But make sure you have someone who knows what animals they are. Have a gotten a few rises where they couldn't tell us any info just give us a ride....

I can not wait for the train to be up and running.the boat ride is worth the trip alone. Love the cat house.they have added more apes. They have added more animals. Wish they had more but my children loved it and it was cheap. They have added a splash pad for the summer.

A little dated and fallen on hard times. Very low price. The boat tour is very unique. The animals basically have free range. Nice little zoo.

The zoo is getting a new amusement ride, a train that will go over areas visitors can't see any other way. The boats just got a new look. It really is improving and adding new, fun events that are family friendly.
