Zootastic Park

A visit to Zootastic Park is a trip to the zoo that’s both fun and educational. It’s a perfect setting for a family fun day or for large groups, like school groups or summer camps. The park offers something exciting for the kid in all of us.

Oh what fun! Went there with friends for my birthday and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We reserved at an earlier date and paid extra for experiences the lemurs and kinkajou, binturong, a baby kangaroo as well as the sloth and it was a wonderful experience. John was our zoo keeper and was very knowledgeable. It was costly, but worth it for the fun.

Wonderful culinary/walking tour of Davidson. Our tour guide Teresa gave the history of the town, the college and several homes and church's as we walked. The restaurant owners were gracious -and served generous samples. Come hungry!

Awesome time! I went skydiving for the first time last weekend with my sister and we both had an absolute blast. The Skydive Central NC crew were entertaining and very helpful throughout the entire experience. The video footage was really cool as well. I would recommend them to beginner or expert jumpers.

Rock Springs Nature Preserve

Reviewed By 20hdk

This is a relatively new (2015) county park along Little Creek off Lake Norman. In its current state, there are plenty of parking spots with a beautiful pavilion, very nice restroom facilities and a great playground. There is a short walking trail, partly paved and maybe half a mile all totaled, through the woods. The county put in a rustic woodsy outdoor classroom. I've seen birthday parties held in the pavilion with children really enjoying the playground equipment. The only negative I have is that the equipment is placed in a clearing with no shade and this equipment can get quite hot to climb on in the summer. I'd like to see at least a portion under cover so it can be enjoyed at any time of the year and day. Other than that, it was meant to be a passive park and it definitely meets that definition. The restroom building is very nice and the pavilion offers a very large eating area. I often see families enjoying the area, particularly in the cooler morning and late afternoon. The county opens the gates at sunrise and shuts them at sunset. Many folks use the walking path year round, as we have. I don't know if future improvements are planned to utilize the portion of land down to the water but currently no portion of the improved park area gives access to Little Creek unless one walks through the woods. It is a great place for us to take visiting grandchildren for an hour or so of playground fun. I'm pleased the county took the step to preserve this large parcel for current and future generations to enjoy.

Clean, friendly, relatively safe...
Prices are average considering what it provides.
However, understaffed, poorly managed....but management is over-tasked given the circumstances...so it's not management's fault.
Ticket machines always going xown...and staff are over-tasked and can'tfix machines...
Could be a lot better....but still enjoyable...FYI yhey only have two cashier stations and their process os too labor intensive. A customer should be entirely dealt with a touch screen system.
