We've visited the zoo twice in the last 3 years - while in town visiting family. We have a 6 and a 3 year old. It's well worth a visit. The Zoo is clean and very family-friendly. They have wagons that you can use for a suggested $3 donation - recommended for the youngsters - a lot of walking. Definitely go first thing in the morning to beat the heat and crowds - and to see the animals while they're more active. Volunteers were there to share interesting information about the animals and wildlife. We packed a lunch, got our hand stamped, and went to the car to eat/take a break. My 6-year old is very into trains and loved the train exhibit.
