I greatly enjoyed seeing the animals during my visit, there is a nice variety and a lot to see. However, although I don't have any mobility issues, visitors should know that the terrain is rather uneven and in some areas a little tough to manuever,...More

First time here and my family and I had a blast. It's not a very big place and is great for small children to move around and look at all the animals. I am a big giraffe lover and the giraffe exhibit was big and...More

Fun for children under 12. Not good after or on a rainy day. There's a dinosaur excavating area, and a feeding of the Lorikeets. Our 3 year old granddaughter was fascinated by them, but afraid to have them land on her. Her 13 and 10...More

We go every year, it gets a bad rap but we enjoy it and have not noticed any animal cruelty. We are locals

This is a true gem. A zoo in the woods. More animals than you may expect. A great way to spend a few hours. Good for all ages.

Walking up to the building entrance for this park is truly deceiving for the hidden gem it is! It's like taking a leisurely trek in the woods, and getting to visit with so many different animals. Take away the hustle and bustle of a big...More

This private zoo can be tackled in 2-3 hours. Our 4 and 7 year olds LOVED it. We went to the "Turtle Town" and "Parrot Feeding" activities on the schedule and it was 100% worth it-- they open up the enclosures and the animals get...More

We were up in the lake area on an unseasonably cold day with not a lot of options. This was a great way to spend a few hours. Although they really need to improve the walking paths because they're very difficult. Grandma could not go...More
