I've been at zoos on three continents, but this is one of my favorites. It's small, but very well kept; the lion exhibit has won awards, and the petting zoo is a kids' favorite. A bonus is that it is level with nice walking trails, so if you have trouble walking, use a wheelchair, or take a kid in a stroller, it is ideal. Parts of the zoo are historic (built in the 30s), among them the newly remodeled animal house, which features a large ship inside - a kids' favorite.
