This is a great smaller zoo with lots of opportunities for children to get direct contact with many of the animals (more so in the barn than other locations). They built a tunnel for the children to watch the sea otters swimming all around them and the staff is great. They really care about the animals and the visitors. PLUS, it's free.
excellent place to introduce small children to zoo animals

This zoo was small, but had a lot of 'hands on' things for the kids to do. The zoo workers were all very nice and helpful as well. And what was also very nice was that the admission is FREE! I recommend giving this place a visit:)
The new animals are really neat and the kids have a lot of fun playing in the fountain. One of the best parts is the family farm area with goats, chickens and miniture horses to pet. The monkeys are always entertaining and the big cats are beautiful to see. The zookeepers bring out lots of different animals for people to see and touch, which is really fun up close experience.
