My friends and I went to the zoo and park. We especially enjoyed the zoo and the animals there. The white lion was beautiful and to watch how the little animals reacted to their parents were amazing. How they knew that mommy would protect them...More

Such a terrible place to visit if you like animals. Depressed, lonely, animals in tight, old enclosures, not enough water/food. I cannot believe this place is allowed to stay open. It is harrowing! This might have been acceptable 50yrs ago, but it is not and...More

The zoo was well beyond our expectations, having visited many big city zoo’s we did not know what to expect. In the end worth the price, check it out and feed the deer!

This is a fun place to spend the day with kids. What’s great is that you can buy a pass for the zoo only if you don’t want to do the rides. We got passes for rides and zoo for the kids but only one...More

Yes there is a picnic area located by the roller coaster, and if you purchase their food you can use those tables. There are also several benches located throughout the park for resting.

Yes, you can bring your own food, there were picnic tables all over the place. We brought a cooler, kept it in the car and then ate at the tables
