Petting Zoo Ocala Reviews & Ratings
Wow! We visited the so this morning and were quite surprise by everything! They have a variety of animals available for view and interaction, very clean facilities and a polite and professional staff. A must visit for animal enthusiasts, families and individuals. If you don't like large crowds then I suggest you visit on weekdays. Give it a visit soon!
I have a 1.5 and 3.5 year old. We had a lot of fun. The animals are friendly and well cared for. The farm is clean and the environment is comfortable. I do feel like the cost is a little much for your run-of-the-mill petting zoo...we paid almost $40 for entrance + a bag of feed (and that's with the smaller kid being free entry). It costs less to go to the zoo in Gainesville and the petting zoo is included there. So we had fun, but we probably wouldn't come back. One thing that put a huge damper on my visit was that they have a swing set that sits out in the yard for small children to play on. OF COURSE my kids wanted to swing for a while, and I would have let them; but because it was uncovered, the swings were BLISTERING hot. My kids threw little tantrums and begged for me to cool the swings down for them.... That's not the fault of the farm, I just think they could do with a little cover there to keep the kids from getting hurt when they tackle the play equipment full speed.
Not worth the money. Very few chances to pet more than goats... the cool animals were all locked up and there was no one around to help. When I did see someone she just told me the wallaby was not in her pen... I asked will we be able to see her and the response was nope. For a petting zoo you get to pet goats. Everything else is kept out of reach and out of site in the case of the day I was there.
Their claim to fame are a pair of mini horses that they say are the smallest in Florida. They are skinny skinny skinny did I mention skinny and in desperate need of a trim. Several other animals have halters growing into their skin, and are in need of proper feed
The Zoo areas are clean and well maintained. We didn't stay long due to the heat but really enjoyed it all. Very healthy looking animals.
