Came on a beautiful autumn day & enjoyed a pleasant walk round. We wanted to see it having seen it featured in movies & we weren't disappointed. The sea lion feeding was great.

If you visit the city with kids this is a really hot destination... the zoo is really well designed and you can complete your visit in 2 or 3 hours; there are a couple of good animal shows that it is worth to see.
