This 52-acre zoo is well maintained and easy to navigate, with plenty of stopover areas for picnics, including play areas where younger children can run and explore.
A clear tube slide where you see the otters swimming around you as you slide down and Grammy Nell’s tree-shaded play area are two of the most beloved attractions here, in addition to African lions, elephants and giraffes.
Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
