This was a nice surprise. They brought out animals to pet. The lion and tiger exhibit was cool. The bird exhibit was creepy (in a good way) but the kids loved it. Nice little zoo! Would go again.

Stopped by here on a hot day, and really enjoyed the shade! The zoo is small, but you're right up on top of the exhibits, which is great with the big cats. The kids got a kick out of a raccoon who'd gotten into the...More

Decent price, eatery is expensive, snake room always smells, but we do enjoy our trips there. They did away with the petting zoo, which was disappointing. 2 pokemon gyms in the area.

A small zoo. Real up close and personal to the animals. Fun to be so close to animals. Staff was very sociable - we arrived early as they were getting animals out and about. Worth the fun and took about an hour or so.

This is a small-town zoo that looks to operate on a limited budget. Most of the animals are native to Texas, but they do have a few big cats and monkeys. The highlight of the visit were the Peacocks. My wife is crazy about Peacocks...More
