We were wanting to take my nephew to a zoo. We didn’t want to drive in the Washington D.C. traffic so we found this zoo online. I have to be honest we almost didn’t go after reading all the negative..... more »
Excellent animal arrangements, Children will enjoy the animal movements without any fear. Children can feed some of animals. Very nice experience for them. We can spend a joyful day here with our family members. Excellent collection of animals & well maintained. I am on vacation from Chennai, India & enjoyed here with my grandson.
My family and I had an excellent time visiting this zoo! The parking was open and free. They had many popular animals such as penguins, lions, giraffes, rhinos, and tigers. Their reptile section displayed many different snakes that I hadn't seen at other zoo's. Overall I would recommend to visit this zoo if you're in the area.
