This Zoo is a huge piece of crap. Remember the nice polar bear exhibit from years a ago? You'd look through the fence and see a big white bear swimming in a moat? Well now it its a little monkey in a cage. So now you look through a fence over an empty moat onto an island through a cage to what they claim is a monkey. Remember the seals, swimming and barking? Now it's a pile of rubble surrounded by POLICE DO NOT CROSS TAPE. They also have a baby deer in a fish tank with trees painted on a wall. The birds are all ugly and smelly. One of the workers asked my 11 year old son for a cigarette. There is a peacock who roams freely, which would be cool, but this one is clearly an anti-semtic grouch.

not worth the time, effort, and the $9/adult... this zoo should just be closed down, it doesn't get the job done, and it's a waste of time for the employees that work there, who be off doing something more productive.

very few interesting animals, e.g. black bear, cougar, leopard, and bald eagle, but their habitats are depressing... in the summer during day the animals hardly come out of their boxes, and wont be doing much more than sleeping... the birds of prey show is ok, the only redeeming feature... just take the kids to a playground and let them run around... plenty of time later in life to go to a real zoo...

Stone Zoo is a nice place to take the kids for the day. It is not a huge zoo but it is good for young children. They do not have as many animal as they had in the past, but they still do have some interesting ones like to leapord, otters, reindeer ect. If you go at christmas time you can see the zoo lights, and santa. that is a great time for the kids and adults alike, we have gone every year for the last 4 to 5 years and are not bored by it yet. The zoo does have room for improvement but over all it is a great place to take the kids once a year.

This is a great way to spend a day. It is a wonderful zoo. The kids loved every moment. They enjoyed all the animals. I do not thinkt they had a favorite since they liked them all. The staff was nice and helpful They knew alot about the animals. They were very informative. We all learned alot.

this is a great place to take the kids on a nice summer day. they have very good prices and very nice people that work there. the only thing is that there just isn't enough attractions to keep the kids busy for the day. i remember coming here as a chid and there were so many attraction and things to see, but now most of that is gone. most of the larger animals and exhibits are long gone, from what i here though is they are trying to bring some of it back. we will have to see.

Reasonably priced, under two is free, 2-12 is $4.5 and adults are $7.50. There are just enough exhibits to keep little ones excited. Not much walking compared to larger zoos. There is a snack bar with reasonable prices. A great playground for the kids and a few mechanical rides. I took my two year old last week and she loved it. It is big enough to spend most of the morning. At Christmas time, the Zoo puts on a beautiful display of Christmas lights and exhibits. Close to the highway.

I know they have been struggling for years, and they rely on grants and donations and such, but I think they can do better. They added some new displays............but they are not displays with live animals really. They added a few with spiders, and snakes and such. But where are all the BIG animals one goes to the zoo to see? They are mostly gone! I believe the elepant is gone and the giraffe. The monkey display is down to just a few. I feel badly for the zoo, I know they are trying. It might be a good place to go once, if you've never been. But don't bother to go if you have to travel a distance to get to it, just not worth it.

This is a nice zoo located close by. Not too many animals here, but enough to see to fill up an afternoon at the zoo. Great playground across the street from zoo. Right now they are having the Birds of Prey exhibit at the zoo. Interesting! Parking is free. Don't forget to come here during Christmas time...the whole zoo is light up in lights and it's really beautiful. They have hot chocolate and a little train ride for the kids too.

Stone Zoo is a great place if you are into animals and especailly seeing ones that you wouldnt be able to see normally. They are great and only cost 7.50 for aduls and 4.50 for children. They have group rates and also senior citizen discounts for 6.50 a ticket they have it also so that you could have a party there which i think is very cool because it is a place that you can be outside all day and enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful types of different animals. I love the zoo and seeing all the different types of animals and if you do too I would suggest you check out this zoo because I really enjoyed it and I would reccomend it to anyone who is looking for something fun to do and to see some good animals.
