Nice Zoo

Had a nice visit to the zoo. Price was reasonable and zoo layout very nice. All in all we had a good trip even though it was 90 degrees out.

It was fun...and memorable!! There wasn't as much walking as I thought. The train ride was quite pleasant, and not too fast. There were several interactive things for kids to do-- Rope climbing, water spouts, etc. The price of food wasn't too bad, and tasty.

Had a great day at the Zoo. The exhibits are fully detailed providing as much information as possible on the animals habitats, diets, and just about anything you can think of. Staff are very helpful and knowledgeable.

I have traveled all of the world and have visit many zoos on my journeys. This zoo is my favorite. Well kept, nice layout and animals appear to be well kept. Worth the trip and worth it to become an annual passholder.

Was a very nice zoo for all ages of kids and adults. The seal show was very good and my 7, 5 and 4 year old grandsons really liked the show. The lay out of the zoo is nice to walk . The Asian gardens were really nice with all different types of bamboo. The animals were all in natural... More

This is a beautiful zoo. It has come a long way. The exhibits are very natural for the animals, and offer fantastic viewing opportunities for visitors. It's not a cheap way to spend the day, but well worth it.

My kids loved this zoo. There are many different animals to see. We got to see a baby being carried under the mama. The staff was very knowledgeable about the animals and were able to withstand the many many questions my kids had for them.

A very nice zoo just north of the city. A great place to walk and see the animals. I even brought the Sunday paper and sat and read it since it was so peaceful.

I love the Zoo and The butterfly house. The thing is , on really hot days like over 97 (I THINK) they give you half price admission... The ice cream was on sale though!!!!
