  • We LOVE the zoo! We're former annual pass owners (pre covid) and after going again recently (5-15-22) we will DEFINITELY be getting them again. They have made incredible renovations to the zoo and now you can free roam with your family. So much better! Love the picnic area and the new alligator exhibit! Can't wait to go back.
  • Smaller than some but the cleanest most relaxing time we've had at any zoo Our 4 yo grandson loved it. Highly recommended, beautiful animals.
