“Good”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Well, if you're American you won't find anything here that beats any zoo in the states, but if you're here to stay then it's a great place to go on an outing. make sure to wear sneakers, as is a whole lot of walking!

“family fun”

A great way to spend a day. Food is available, but it is more fun to bring a picnic lunch! Enjoy!

“great place for everyone!”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Just returned from this special zoo with three kids , all ages, and we all loved it. Take the train up to the top of the zoo and then walk your way down. There is so much to see and it is very well taken care of. Everyplace there are zoo workers who tend and take care of things. The zoo is clean , shaded in many places, and beautiful. There is a wide range of animals to see and clear explanations. If you like walking and enjoy animals, this is the place for you. We went on a pretty hot day and it was bearable b/c of all the shaded areas. Plenty of benches to rest weary feet. Also fans that cool you off with a shpritz of water. A really great place to spend the afternoon. Go towards late afternoon. The zoo closes during the summer at 7. You need about 3-4 hours to see everything and towards evening there are good breezes and it cools off a bit. There was even live entertainment: a jazz group performed. The animals seem to be tended to well and at nearly each exhibit there was a zoo worker who could answer any questions asked. Go ,you will have a great time! We want to go back again soon!
