Lovely zoo with lots of interesting animals. Spacious and modern, always fun for a nice stroll. When the grill is running they have pretty decent burgers.

Beautiful, large zoo with lots of different animals. There were a few animals we didn't get to see, but that was because the animals had lots of space, trees and shelters, as it should be!
