Comment on this business
Good for families w/small children. Spend an hour. Allow slightly more time if you bring or buy a lunch. Brought teen girls, we all enjoyed our visit. ImHO, becoming too modernized, used to be charming. Even the caboose has been modernized and is virtually unrecognizable inside as a caboose. Now walls are lined w/ preschool exhibits.

Very cute small local friendly Zoo, nice for kids and adults to interact with animals. Nice picnic tables, small fun fairs (pay extra for that). Easy parking.

We were in town visiting family and this zoo was close by. It is small but well cared for. With one child who wishes to be a zookeeper, we're always looking for good opportunities. Cosley Zoo offers a Backstage Bobcats program where you go into the Bobcats building and they show you how they train the cats. A really educational presentation that the kids enjoyed. To participate - you can call ahead or stop at the gift shop. It's $12/person and starts promptly at 10:55am each day.

Very cute small petting zoo with llamas, goats, cows, chickens and a lovely Christmas lit walk. They have a cool Ozinga concrete mixer truck hooked up to a light show. So cute for family and friends to take a little outing!

My grandchildren and I really enjoyed seeing all of the many animals. We go there often because it's so nice and they keep adding additions of various animals as well as expanded shelters for them. I give them a five star for cleanliness, for their beautiful and creative exhibits for each animal and for the ways children interact with baby sheep, goats, pigs, rabbits, horses, cows, chickens and ducks. They also have bobcats, deer, owls, many species of birds etc. The fact that kids are free is an added bonus. Pack a lunch! They have many, many picnic tables, and they sell food and ice cream as well.
