It's not the biggest zoo or the most exotic zoo, but it's a zoo with elephants, exhibits, a carousel, and room for children to run. It's a manageable size for an hour or two of activities. Everyone loves the elephants, Emily and Ruth, and the last time we went we were lucky enough to catch the elephant talk. The farm exhibit has animals most children are already familiar with, so they have fun watching the pigs, sheep, and horses. The beaver and bear exhibits are always good for some animals in action. There are also indoor exhibitis of birds and aquatic creatures. It's affordable, especially if someone has the grandparents' membership. There is a lunch room and a gift shop, and there is a play area just outside the zoo's fence.
