Not for high speed hikers and certainly not a chance for solitude. But this is one of the best zoos in the area and a nice chance to get in a couple miles while seeing something different. It is better equipped for small children too. Accessibility: This asphalt, brick, and concrete trail is estimated to typically be at least 10 feet wide. The slope is mostly gentle and estimated to range from 0 to 5% grade. There are at least 4 ADA-compliant car parking spots with access aisles at the Zoo parking lot.

Very well kept. Small zoo and due to covid a lot was closed. Some animals were still out and about.

The zoo is great. The trail path needs to be redone.

This Zoo was not as big as I expected. I was disappointed.

We borrowed some kids and went today. The easy mile and a half took 3 hours this time. (Stop for burgers, stop for Italian ice, stop for ice cream, etc.) but it was a lot of fun. We always think the zoo is for the kids and then we enjoy it more than they do. What's up with that???

Nice zoo. You can see everything in a mile and a half or zig-zag for more mileage.

It was a lot of fun but sooooooo many people!!! They have added a lot more habitat to this zoo and it is great.

First to Review

It was a beautiful Saturday and the place was packed. (As in overflow parking.) But I had family in from out of town with small children. I certainly could not take them on a trail so this was a great way to get in a walk.
