A much larger Zoo than I expected! Had a light rain, but no problems as there are many indoor exhibits, and most viewing areas are covered. Many zoos concentrate on exotics, and they have these, but also a nice section on North America. The animals...More

One of the best zoo I’ve been. First time I’ve seen a tiger awake. Lol There are a number of restaurant/snack bars inside which is very convenient esp on a hot summer day. We enjoyed our visit here!

In my opinion this zoo is one of the best in the USA. It’s not a lot of concrete and offers a lot of freedom for the children to see and run. Nice job housing and feeding the animals, beautiful surroundings and polite caring employees.

I have been all around the US looking at different zoos and this one by far has them all beat! If you are in town or even in the area do not miss out.
