  • Thanks for a wonderful experience. Seeing a porcupine walking from one location to another as soon as we entered just started the visit off to a great start. The shade, the friendly staff, the air...

  • Went there on a hot Thursday Loved it! But sun was scorching hot, they have cool zones but it was unbearable. Animals were in top shape. I will come back!

  • Good zoo. I really enjoyed how it's set up. We went during a cold day so there was some things we didn't get to see but it was nice having the dinosaur's out around the zoo. Good variety of animals. Also my kids got to ride on a camel which was pretty fun for them. A bit pricey but they enjoyed it so I'm a happy parent.
  • I really enjoyed my time at this zoo. I would say it’s a medium size zoo with lots of engaging exhibits. I saw so many animals out. I loved all the fish in water exhibits, which was throughout the zoo. Pretty impressive bird collection. So many kid friendly areas and lots of restrooms peppered throughout. I’ve been to lots of zoos throughout the US and this has to be in my top 3!
