Any parent knows a good trip to the zoo depends a lot on the weather. Today could have not been more perfect! It was cloudy all day. Only sprinkled on us enough to call it playing in the rain! But this zoo was just the...More

It’s a wonderful zoo with some great exhibits. I love feeding the giraffes. They’ve gotten really expense lately though and I feel that there should be a little more included in the experience for the price. But it’s a fun experience!

We had such an enjoyable time at this zoo. It’s well laid out with a great variety of animals to see. The camel ride looked a little abusive, since the camel looked to be underweight and sickly. We spent Hours there and had an amazing...More

Beautiful Landscaping welcomes you on the drive in. Big parking lots. Note it is a long walk from the entrance to the first exhibits. If you have small kids go for a stroller. Exhibits are half outside/half outside. Inside has awesome air conditioning for hot...More
