Must See!
Jun 2021 • Family
This zoo is very green, it’s like a hidden gem in the city. I will warn you it’s a LOT of walking but we have an 8 and 10 year old and they loved it. The animals have so much space in their living areas compared to other zoos around the country. We had a membership to anther zoo and we were given a 50% discount. The website says you have to buy tickets online, NOT true, you can get them at the entrance. Great day and lots of shade on the walkways will go back for sure.

We are from out of town and were looking for a place to kill a few hours. The zoo was perfect. While many of the concession kiosks were closed and the ice cream machine was down, we still had a nice time.

We loved this zoo! Went with a 2.5 year old. We went twice. First time 2.5 hours and didn’t see it all and went back to see it the rest spending 3 hours. Great exhibits, well laid out. Mostly shaded areas. Almost all animals available to see. There is a very cool playground but wasn’t open yet.

Nice Average Zoo Visit
Apr 2021
Very nice zoo; traffic flow was terrific as everyone traveled in one direction, so no bumping into others coming toward you. A bit light on the animal exhibits, but the habitats are wonderful - they really care for their animals. Fun to see the Gibbons swinging in a huge open-area pen; the baby Kanga's were cute.

Be prepared to walk, often on an incline. Walkways are nicely shaded.
