The zoo was a pleasant surprise. Although it was a hot July day, the zoo was relatively comfortable. There is lots of shade available and the exhibits are well done. The heat did make for some lethargic animals but we still saw plenty. The size is perfect--not exhausting but enough animals to suit.

The zoo was good, take an umbrella for the sun. Sort of sprawling, but there is a nice lawn to sit and have a picnic. Lots of kids and families, and some really interesting animals.

I was very sad to see how ill maintained the main grass area by the duck pond was. We used to have a membership to the zoo and went all the time just for picnics. The grass area is no where I would want to eat or even sit now. The grass was dead and dry. I was also very... More

This is an all day activity. We did the package deal. Zoo, aquarium, and botanical gardens. Very reasonably priced. Lots of walking.

We all loved it. Great walk with many sites so you didn't really notice how much walking you had done. The butterflies were very cool. We went earlier in the day and it wasn't too packed or too hot.

I am not a big fan of zoos in general but I have to say that this one is very nicely done. The design & layout is lovely and we appreciated frequent shady areas for a chance to get out of the hot sun. The animal enclosures seem to be well designed and roomy, for the most part. I paid... More

The zoo seemed poorly laid out to us and not enough directional signs. We did get to see a day old giraffe that made up for all the walking confusion.

Visited the BioPark and got the combo ticket. The butterfly pavilion was wonderful and we could have spent most of the day there. The botanical garden was larger than we expected with fine exhibits of high desert and Mediterranean plants, rose gardens, a Japanese Garden, and much more. The aquarium contained a variety of sea life and was enjoyable. We... More

This zoo is really nice and comfortable to go to. They have places you can go eat and nice cool areas to relax in. My kids really enjoyed this zoo. Down side was kids park was closed so call and check before going. Take the train to the aquarium and you can see other areas you can drive to after... More
