  • We love this zoo! So many animals to see and you can see most in a morning which is perfect with little ones. Zookeepers are always friendly and willing to answer questions and seem to enjoy their jobs. It is so obvious that they really love the animals they care for (we love talking with the keepers of the orangutans). The Tropics has always been my favorite but their Australia and South America sections are definitely underrated stops during your trip. Worth the trip even if we didn't live so close!
  • A great place. One of the better zoos out there. It's a little slow as of right now as they are undergoing massive renovations on most all enclosures but still amazing overall. Plan to spend 5 or 6 hours if you truly want to see everything without a rush.
