Great place to take the kids. We chose to walk the first part, fed the koi, visited the animals. We boarded the tram for the last part, learned interesting facts from the driver. We exited the tram... more »
Amazing zoo with wonderful accommodating staff. The exhibits are large and animals all looked happy and playful. Zookeepers were knowledgeable about every animals past before they got to the zoo. Tram driver knew many interesting facts about the history of the zoo. The museum was very interesting and something I have never seen at any other zoo. For $14 you can get a days worth of fun and learning. Highly recommend.
Nice zoo. Not too big. Nice play area for kids at front entrance. A lot of the animals were not very active and some of animals weren't even outside. It was a nice day when we went.
