Medium size zoo, easy location. Very nice bkgd story. Best part petting zoo and aviary (can feed and pet 2 kinds of friendly birds). Fun to feed giraffe and easily spend 4 hours. Type of food could be more fun, took 20 min for simple chicken salad as chicken was apparently raw (was it taken fresh from the zoo?). When... More

A big zoo with so much to see and do. All members of our family enjoyed our visit. We especially liked the alligator feeding and giraffe feeding! We go to the zoo every time we visit the area and will definitely go back again!

This zoo is small but very entertaining. We took our 5 yr old nephew and he loved it. The giraffes are always a trip. You should watch the kids ( and some adult) faces when the tongue reaches out to take food. Quite a sight. Clean, fairly shady so hot days get a bit of relief. Kayaking is fun and... More

Rode the train, fed the giraffes, and a very cool exhibit of trash polluting our oceans. At the end of the exhibit, children make their own art to be on display.
