The exhibit for the animals are nice, but the employees completely ruined my experience here, especially the boss. My kids shouldn't have to witnessed her repeatedly verbally abuse her employees. Which has been been a reoccurring event on out visi. Called them terrible names I'm hoping my kids won't repeat. No idea how anyone could work here. Its both disrespectful and unprofessional. It's hard to explain the situation to a four year and five year in a positive way. If this is how employees are treated, i would hate to see how the animals are treated. I won't be back!

We did not go on the right day or the right time of year. Having said that, the kids petting zoo associate was very nice and very informed about all of her animals. The zoo was surprisingly clean and most of the animals looked like they were in good condition.

Drive through a rough neighborhood to get to the zoo. Enclosures are small. Animals are overweight. Infrastructure falling apart. Do not recommend.

This is a really cool small zoo. The staff is really friendly and helpful. For six dollars you can't beat it. Would visit again if I'm in area.
