Small, but still has a great variety of animals. Staff are friendly and approachable - if you catch them during feeding time, they can tell you all sorts of info about the animals in their care! Lots of birds, a few unique reptiles in an indoor exhibit, some penguins and otters, and other small mammals. Big guys include some cougars, huge African vultures, and a couple of wolf packs that were easy to see during the day and really fun to watch in their big, wooded enclosure. Area was clean and had plenty of shady spots. An ice cream spot and restrooms halfway through was a great feature!

It was awesome to see all the different animals but we wished there were more big cats. My son was really hoping to see a tiger and all they had was a snow leopard and a cougar because their Amur Leopard passed away. Also, we were also hoping to see a fainting goat. Other than that, the price was good and my son really loved feeding the goats.

We had a good time. The path for the exhibits is 3/4 of a mile long & the entire loop a little over a mile. Not a huge selection of animals but this isn't the San Diego Zoo & isn't trying to be. Parking was simple, and admission cheap. We're definitely coming again. Park is well maintained. Only gripe is a that the multi-level viewing areas are NOT wheelchair or stroller friendly. No elevators, only stairs for them.

Very disappointed with this "zoo", When i was a kid it was beautiful, and over the years it's turned to nothing, the poor animals that are left in the enclosures looked very sick they had little to no water,and no food. I feel so bad for them. They would honestly be better off closing that zoo and putting those animals in a zoo where they would have more attention and water, and there enclosures are well kept. Don't think I would go back, did not like seeing animals like that. Something needs to be done.

A great little zoo that can be experienced without quickly without being overwhelming. Yet they have some very nice exhibits you might not always see in a typical zoo. My family and I have enjoyed visiting many times over the years.
