We took our grandson to this zoo and thought it was a very nice one to visit. I grew up in San Diego and I would have to say this is my second favorite zoo out of the several that I've been to over the years. We recommend visiting the Watering Hole in the African habitat. It is so beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed a healthy lunch that they offer inside at their grill for a reasonable price and watched the animals. A must see and we will definitely be going back.
Staff did a great job of answering questions and very friendly. There have been a lot of good changes made since last time I was there. The water area it's a great addition. The only issue I had was the overall look. Wasn't as kept up maintenance wise as the last time I was there and I think security should be a little more stringent. For the price, it is a good family experience. If I could give 4 1/2 starts I would.
