  • We enjoy taking our grandkids to the zoo. We have as much fun as they do. And we always take a train ride. A lot of things for the kids to do and places for grandparents to sit and watch the kids...  more »

  • Well laid out. Lots to do. Perfect for small children. With all the new additions, we could easily spend an entire day there. It also makes a membership a no brainer. We can stop by for just an hour or 2 after church or after school & play in the indoor playground & splash around a little. All screen free!
  • I love to take the kids here. My toddler enjoys exploring the paths and sandboxes and my 12 year old loves the classes and exhibits and it's small enough that she can venture on her own on uncrowded days. All of the animals seem in excellent health and are very well cared for. The staff is always great, and so are the "zoo crew" kids that help out with pony rides and the such. Every time I go we learn something new so it's always a great experience.
