  • A hilly walk in the partially shaded outdoors with some, indoor exhibits of North American animals. They have a variety of exhibits and picnic tables for lunch. Friendly staff. Clean bathrooms with Family bathrooms available. Wheelchair accessible but challenging on the paved kinda steep hills. If parking is full can park in city garage 1.5 blocks away with overhead walkway and tunnel access to avoid crossing busy streets. Cute gift shop with variety of stuffed animals, including a toddler friendly stuffed animal rack for under $10 with toys that cling to your arm so that kids are less likely to drop them on the way home ;) It was a great day out in the open air, not too crowded. This is not as dynamic as a big city zoo, but a simple morning or afternoon path that is not too long to tire everyone out. We packed a lunch, anf good thing because I don't know they will open the food stand. The animals are chill, many are being rehabilitated. They have variety, not quantity. Keeps the kids engaged. Wear sunscreen and stretch your legs on a beautiful sunny or partially sunny day. Sr Citizens discount $2 off ticket price each and Military full family discounts available.
  • Amazing variety of animals, saw some I've never seen before and the setup is pretty cool. Seeing a bear in person was freaky but definitely cool. They also give tons of cool info throughout and the staff was very helpful and pleasant. Not the biggest zoo but they make up for it with what they offer
