We were in Des Moines for a week and had nothing to do my little girl insisted on seeing the local Zoo. I have to admit I was not too enthusiastic coming from New York City and growing up with the Bronx Zoo I was skeptical about taking her to this one. Upon getting to the zoo it is a curvy road with two parking lots both gravel. The first was already full so we parked in the second one. We made our way over to the entrance and paid the admission for the three of us $28 not a bad price. It was a nice zoo with a good variety of animals and even some animals that I thought would not be at such a small zoo like this one. Overall they covered all of the animals in a fun way for children. The zoo was laid out in a big circle and it was quite fun to see which animal you would encounter next. Also the discovery center inside is also a very beautiful and fun place to visit. The zoo is clean and the people are friendly and I wouldn't mind coming back to the Blank Park Zoo.
