Admission is only $5 per person and it's a nice zoo. It's pretty small though and took us only 1 hour to see everything.

Nice place, inside and outside. Always improving. Certainly not San Diego Zoo, but what is there is well maninted and quality. Just might be one of the best small zoos in the country. My granddaughter LOVES the train!

The zoo wasn't large and didn't take long to navigate it in its entirety but it was well set out, easy to walk and quite pleasant. Renovation work was taking place, I am sure it will only improve as new exhibits are added / opened.

Yes, it's a small zoo... but there are some great animals, everything is clean / organized, and best of all the price is great! $5 to get in, $2 for the train ride (skip this, it's not worth the money). Lemurs, prairie dogs, small cats,...More

Eh it's ok rather small, but for small children or a few hours, not bad. We prefer the Audubon though

My 18 month old loves this zoo. We went almost once a week this summer and she was always interested and had a great time. It's the perfect morning out. There is plenty of shade and fans throughout the zoo. Becoming overheated in the Mississippi...More

What a perfect little place! It's still growing, so stay tuned but in the meantime, what a sweet little gem! At only $5, you get a splash pad, cool little playground and some neat animals. For a little more, you can get a train ride....More
