We took our grandkids and their parents to the zoo. I hadn't visited for at least 10 years. Everything about the zoo has improved dramatically since; the variety of animals, the layout, the rest areas and the size of the exhibits. This is a good value for a family outing.

This is good for the children, you really can see so many different animals! However, the water and ponds the animals had was all green and gross and sad really.

We decided to go to the zoo after breakfast. The in-laws had given us tickets. We had an amazing time. We hadn't been there in about two years but after this visit, we will be going more often for sure. There were a lot of new add-ons since our last trip. Its really cool what they've done (there's even a... More

Had a great time visiting the zoo, my 20 month old sun thoroughly enjoyed all the animals and liked to imitate their sounds and actions, lots of work always being put in to take good care of the zoo. Keep up the good work.

Pros: The zoo has some very nice exhibits, most notably the guinea pigs, which were adorable, especially with the baby pigs trailing after their mom. Most of the outdoor exhibits were nice and spacious enough for the animals (i.e. lions, tigers, camels, ostriches) Cons: Some of the indoor exhibits were extremely small for their inhabitants, not to mention the buildings...

The fact that I could come here with my family and have a nice relaxing day walking around the zoo was wonderful. Everything is very clean and although I am so against animals living in cages they seem to be well taken care of which is great to see. Every time I go there something is being upgraded and animals... More
