  • I enjoy every visit. They've put up lots of informative boards during the past few years, great for kids but also interesting for adults. Great playgrounds, I admit I'm tempted to try them out every time I walk by. Lots of local families have yearly tickets, this zoo is a place to go to on a nice afternoon.
  • This is a very nice zoo not too big. We arrived in the morning. Most of the zoo is under shade with a lot of woodland and mature trees which is nice on a hot day. The kids loved seeing all the different animals. There are also several playgrounds in the zoo which our kids loved although it was a challenge getting our 3 year old to leave when it was time to go. :)
