We visited the zoo about a week ago with the kids, ages 8 & 11. I don't know what their secret is, but all the big cats were out and awake. Amazing! Overall the zoo is very clean and well laid out. If you have been to any of the bigger aquariums [Boston, Mystic, Baltimore], you can skip this one... More

I don't know when I have been more relaxed and held captive at the same time. The park is perfectly done up and established beautifully. I love that they added the dragon fly and the butterfly garden. My two fave things! put on your walking shoes, relax and take it all in! It was the perfect place for our daughters... More

We spent a beautiful morning walking through the biological park. It is a good place to spend looking at wonderful natural beauty. I do recommend going early in the morning during the summer as it can get quite hot in the afternoon.

I'm so glad our local friends recommended the botanical gardens. We spent a few hours and saw all the different sections. There is a lot of diversity and the gardens are so well maintained. We loved the Japanese Garden and Butterfly Pavilion the most. You can take your own picnic lunch and there's a lovely grassy area with plenty of... More

We purchased the combo ticket for $20 adult admission (includes admission to the aquarium, botanic garden, and the zoo, along with a train ride to take you to the zoo) and found it to be a good value. The aquarium took about an hour to walk through, then we took the train over to the zoo. I actually like that... More

Lovely to stroll but go early in morning to avoid heat of the day. Very inexpensive. Seniors only $5.50

This is a wonderful place. Make sure you have the whole day if you want to see the zoo, gardens and aquarium. If you don't you can still prioritize and see what you want most. The train makes it a snap to get between the segments. There could be better signage to the trains when you are at the aquarium/garden... More

We took our grandchildren ages 4 & 7 to the garden and aquarium. Arrived around 10:30. Toured the impressive botanic garden. Young docents were stationed giving demonstrations on various subjects throughout the garden. Ideal for young children. The old farmstead was of particular interest. Our grand daughter wanted to spend more time with the free roaming chickens. We took a... More
