It's ok, but needs to be updated. Do not go in the summer way too hot. The animals just sit there and do nothing, which kind of makes it boring.

A beautiful zoo. Lots of wonderful adventures and activities for kids. Can be hot depending on the weather. Well worth a visit.

The atmosphere is amazing! And the exhibits keep changing which makes for a unique experience each time! Large enough to have a wide range of animals and habitats, but small enough to see it all in an afternoon. Love the zoo!More

For our family, it would normally cost $55 per visit, but the family membership is only $145 a year, and we've been about 6-7 times already this year. Our little nature lover loves it, especially the Burmese python! This zoo is small compared to the...More

I've never been to a zoo like this one. The atmosphere was not one of "animals in cages". All areas were clean and the animals appeared to be well cared for. I had never seen many of the animals before. We had such a good...More

Average at best! Half of the attractions were closed when we went and there's not that many enclosures as there is. It was rather expensive relative to what it was and wasn't worth the money. May be suitable for small children.
