Great place to visit with kids. Peacocks all over the place, I liked that! Wished the shows were free. The train ride was fun for the kids.

Went here with a couple friends for an afternoon. Had a lot of fun. The zoo is medium sized with nice exhibits, took us 4-5 hours to see everything. I really enjoyed the information boards near each of the animals, as well as the multiple staff people around the grounds answering questions about the animals. The parking and admissions rates...

We didn't go last year due to the road construction, and this year it was a little confusing with some closed roads, but we figured it out. We went on a cloudy somewhat rainy Friday and had a blast. I think the threat of rain kept a lot of people away, but it did make for great animal viewing. So... More

Many animals to see. Love how they have large areas; not small cages. A favorite is the penguins; love to watch them diving into the water.

This was a wonderful activity to do with your family and friends. The staff were friendly and helpful (exept one lady who sold soft prezels).

Zoo was just ok! It's aging compared to years ago. I didn't like the fact that once you paid to get in you had to pay again to see the shows, etc. Zoo was kept clean, easy walking and doesn't take too long.

A fun time was had by all during our recent visit. We visit this zoo at least once a year and we were very impressed with the sting ray exhibit this year. Our 8 year old had a blast touching the rays. We were sad to learn that both of the cheetahs had passed since our last visit (they are... More

The layout was great, the price was good, the animal displays were wonderful (loved that may were't "caged" up), loved that many of the walking paths were shaded, liked the foot massage chairs everywhere.
