The first Tuesday of every month, admission to the Zoo is half price!

Operating since 1963, the zoo has been the home to hundreds of animals from squirrels and chickens to tigers and bears. Each year the zoo welcomes thousands of visitors in a simple and unassuming park like environment. With close to 100 animals your family is sure to enjoy it. You will find an animal your little child will surely enjoy. The monkeys are funny, the owl is cool, and the peacocks and roosters and chickens run wild so that is a delight. Most of the animals are behind wire fences, so you can't see them as well as other zoos. It is a small zoo so its easy to walk around and see everything within an hour or two. Lots of shady spots and benches to rest.

Outside the zoo is a Railway Train Ride you definitely need to ride. It is $1.00 for kids over one. $2.00 for anyone over three I think. It goes along the track next to the library and the zoo. It is great fun for the train enthusiast.
