For a smaller zoo this place is packed with all of the best animals. We really enjoyed seeing the Polar bears, Red Pandas and many different big cats. This zoo is well laid out and very clean and we really enjoyed our visit.

No this is not the same caliber of some zoos and parking can be an issue but it makes for a great thing to do on a lazy afternoon or evening. The animals seem well cared for and the park was clean and kept up...More

My family and I went to the zoo for the Christmas Zoo lights. We had a great time even though it was freezing cold. Would recommend to everyone.

Zoo was awesome plenty to see and we arrived early in the morning at feeding time. Worthwhile making am early start as it gets real busy later in the morning.

We’ve gone to the zoo in the different seasons and recently went for a special night when the zoo was open until 9pm. The animals were very active! My kids loved running around the zoo and pointing all of the animals out to me. We...More

Lots of animals to discover. Kind of disappointed that most were either outside hiding in their habitat or asleep. Didn't get to see the red pandas. They were curled up sleeping. If you go, either go early or later in the day. The middle of...More
