The zoo is not large by any means and does not have a large number of animals. It is currently under construction and things may improve once it's complete. They had a large number of birds to see. I wish they would have had more local animals to see other than the one or two of a species. There is no touching or learning of the animals unlike some other zoos provide. Overall, the kids enjoyed the visit and we could visit again once the construction is complete.

We have come here with our grandchildren on school trips. They love to see all the animals. It is a nice zoo for a small city.

It is awesome, great displays,, habitats, and shops, good common areas, and the best of all is the train ride. You must go during the Christmas holidays at night the entire zoo is lit with amazing animated colorful light. it is worth the trip, i have been year afer year, and I will go again.
