This extraordinary zoo, one of the oldest in the U.S., underwent a multi-million dollar renovation in the 1980s and is still expanding. Its landscaping replicates the natural habitats of the numerous animals, some of which are endangered species. Two panda bears from China delight the crowds, and groups of gorillas separated by moats do their own share of entertaining.

We loved seeing the pandas. There were several other exhibits with animals that aren't in just every zoo including orangutans and gorillas. The pathways are nice and shady. The grounds are very pretty. There is a nice playground for kids as you leave.

Excellent zoo environment! Lots of natural habitats with pathways that keep children visually occupied. You get VERY close to the animals & there are plenty of hands on experiences to keep even the busiest kids content.

Reputation vastly improved. Pandas are just cool. Primates best I've ever seen. Not large but worthy.

Pretty decent as zoos go. This is a smaller zoo but has obviously well cared for animals in well designed environments. Some smaller ones are less than ideal. Caters to families with children.

There were many animals to see and different viewing levels. We were very impressed with the zoo over all. However the reptile exhibit was small.

I went in the fall and the Panda twins were very active and were wrestling with Mom. I could have watched them all day. The Gorilla baby was also very cute.
