"Such an Amazing Gem!"

"We love this zoo, get the membership it's worth it- we are here at least a dozen times a year. Clean. Fun. Safe. Great animal experiences and interactions. The zoofari itself is awesome!!" – Tina G.

"Love Coming Here with Family as a Weekend Activity"

"There are so many areas where the little ones can interact with the animals. I think the best part is the bird atrium where the birds can fly over and sit on your hand and eat off the bird seed sticks. Also the giraffe is very friendly and loves carrots!” – Patti Y.

"Fun Place for Young Kids"

"My family loves this ZOO. It's not too big , but it's a good place for a day of family fun. Both my boys (5 and 10) love to feed all the animals, especially the birds. The bus tour is always exciting." – Nadia B.

"You Can Feed the Animals!!"

“Love this zoo, lots of interaction with the animals and birds! Food is fresh carrots and romaine for purchase at the front along with sticks of feed for the birds. The bus tour is nice and the animals seem to love that they have food at their disposal all day. Great family outing!” – Stephanie R.
