  • It was like a zoo that was just right for small children. It seemed like a big zoo rather than a dreaded walk.

  • This place is the favorite of two of my grandchildren. We're always going to visit him. They have the animals in very good condition. Everything was very well taken care of. The kids enjoy it a lot

  • This place is amazing and there is so much to see! I enjoyed the summer happy hours here but never fully walked the zoo until today. I had a great time. They do so much to enhance the lives of animals and nature that dwell here. It is very environmentally friendly and they continue to work on improvement. Can't wait for the polar exhibit coming next year. They are constructing some very cool new sites!
  • Such an amazing place! It’s so big! Right now they have some construction due to the new stuff coming soon but it wasn’t bad at all. My favorite is the elephants! They may not be in the wild but they have so much space to roam around ☺️ very clean and the staff is great. We live in Seattle and since my daughter was born we go every march now ❤️ the drive is well worth it!!
