Potter Park & Zoo is a great and inexpensive place to take your family. The zoo has a wide variety of animals...my daughter's favorite is the camel...she loves to ride him! Although the zoo is not all that large, it is the perfect place to take your toddler...it is just the right size for 2-3 hours of entertainment. Running through Potter Park is Lansing's River Trail. This paved trail is 6 miles long and provides an excellent path to either run, walk or bike on. Check out this park and zoo!!
