We took our grand children for a few hours and though we didn't get to see everything, what we saw was great. The 9 year old was able to use the easy to follow map to guide us to all the animals they wanted to see. Most of the displays and habitats have been updated with a major project to... More

I was thinking that we did a wrong choice going here, but once there the animals were really nice, it was so cold outside that many of them were inside, we got free hot chocolate. There is a exhibit indoors with elephants at the very end of the zoo, and another one in the very beginning, make sure to cover... More

I was very impressed with the elephant and lion exhibits. These are relatively new changes at the zoo and are certainly worth visiting. I especially liked being able to go inside the large elephant housing facility. Great planning went into this building. Great outing for families.

The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is because we came specifically for my daughter to see the penguins and they were all huddled up in one corner. I just wish it was set up so that one could see them (like in the Monterey Bay Aquarium where there is a little hideaway area you can come in and... More

Always a great time at the zoo - a good day trip and for all ages. Kids seem to like going a few times a year. Thanks for being great!

An local zoo with all the trimmings. The wild cats are a focal point to the zoo but simply stroll about and viewing all the animals will be very pleasant indeed.
