The John Ball Zoo is small but packs a lot of fun for the kids. I have been going to John Ball Zoo since I was a toddler and still enjoy it. My son enjoys the reptile house, while my daughter is fascinated by the petting zoo. The admission is quite inexpensive, but the food and gift shop are a bit pricey. The zoo does not have as many animals as it used to but there are still plenty of fun things to do, I suggest a ride on the camel!!
