The nature walk was really interesting . You get to see the animals in almost a "nayural " envoirment. I would almost call it Frankforts best little Zoo. My wife especially enjoyed it after having cataract surgery. the animals were very clear to see.

Nice local place for families.
Enjoyed brining my out of town family. It has grown over the years. Nice that you can get fishing poles for free.

Salato is a very educational, fun thing for any one to go to. It is very quite and enclosed. Is very safe for young exploring children. Seeing wild animals so close is amazing. When I went last I got to see the buffalo being fed and was around for a bear check up!

Been living in Kentucky for seven years now and finally made our first trip here. It is a great place for kids of all ages. They have some awesome displays of Kentucky wildlife (black bear, bobcats, deer, elk, bison...just to name a few). Make sure you check the calendar of events on their website before you make plans to go. There are educational demonstrations going on at different times throughout the week. Very informative and fun. Please keep in mind, this is a completely non-profit facility. There is no gift shop so their funding comes from donations and the $5 entrance fee.
