  • Had a really great time here. Zoo is a little on the smaller side, but there are still plenty of animals/exhibits to see and scheduled trainer talks with animals throughout the day at different times. You've got small amusement park rides for young one's. Cafe available to buy food/drinks or you could bring your own. There's also a really large playground area available for bigger and younger kids. My boys are aged 4 and 6 and was a perfect outing for them for the day.
  • This place is so beautiful since the remodel a few years ago! Lots of big, clear signage that explains why animals are significant or how to help conservation efforts or the efforts made by the zoo to be a 'green' environment. Lots of fun spots for kids to run around and tire themselves out. A nice little sandwich shop. Lots of community oriented programs. Best of all? The animal cages are larger, airy, full of greenery and toys for enrichment. Highly recommended little zoo - we'll be back!
