We love this little zoo. It's not like a huge city zoo, but that's okay with me. Sometimes in those huge, well known zoos, I end up feeling way too sad for the animals. This zoo really seems to accommodate the animals in a comfortable way. There are a few animal cages that seem a bit small, but most of... More

Beautiful light show. Worth the money. Went on a weekday to avoid the crowds. Many photo opportunities to enjoy.

Friendly small zoo that allows up close viewing of animals. Clean & well kept with activities for children as well as talks by Zoo employees.

Took my grandson there last week and had a great time. Beautiful lights to walk around and good hot cocoa at the stand which was well needed. A must see for the holidays.

Can't say enough about the absolutely magical display of Christmas lights. It's a must see for kids and grown ups alike.

Visited the Winter Light Spectacular with a friend and thought that it was a job well done! Opens around 5:30 at night and runs until 10. I visited on a Saturday, reached the Zoo entrance around 6:15 and was able to finally park around 6:45, so I would recommend getting there a little before 5:30 or come later (we were... More

We went and took in the Winter Light Spectacular at the zoo this past weekend. I was nothing short of AMAZING! It was beautiful! They had Santa there and inflatable snow globes that the family can get in and take pictures. They also had several bon fires lit and offered hot cocoa and kits to make s'mores or just roast...

It was a very neat experience for my family and I. We went to the light show which was very cool. There were lots s of animals too. I recommend this for families to just go to for a fun day and have fun!

We love this place. Our parents brought us here when we were kids, then we took our kids, and now we take our grandchildren. The zoo has gotten better over the years (although we do miss Monkey Island). Today was International Sloth Day, so we went to meet our Amassador, Bean. What a cool creature. There are always kid-friendly activities.... More
