The Zoo is highly rated on both TripAdvisor and Google Reviews. Here are a few:

"This zoo is small but DENSE. Plenty to look at and learn. Even the day after Christmas had a good crowd and most of the exhibits were open. Watching the feedings, petting the goats, or riding the camels will leave lasting memories. Not a place you just go once!" - Joe Arrigo

"I took my 2 year old grandson and he loved it. Oh the excitement and stories he has been telling!! The giraffes, monkeys and camels were his favorite. Great morning out!! Definitely go see the animals and create some priceless memories." - Wendy Skates.
