Recently went to the zoo with our grandchildren - a 6 yr-old and a 3yr. old, both boys. It was Veteran's Day and there specials but it wasn't crowded. The weather was great and most of the animals were active.
The boys were fascinated by the Komodo Dragon in the Reptile House more than just about anything. The lion exhibit was good with five little cubs. They were all over their mother playing. The tiger was also impressive. The elephants were a little far away and not easy to see. The big gorilla at the ape house is impressive.There were plenty of animals, well worth staying 2-4 hours.
There was also several non-animal areas (playgrounds) that were a lot of fun - things to play with and climb on, drums to pound, sand to dig in for bones. There is a farm/petting area with goats and sheep. Our boys were fascinated by two cages of exotic chickens with a chart to identify what kind they were (these are city boys).
We ate lunch at the restaurant and it was pretty good, mostly hamburgers, fries and hot dogs. This is a good place to sit down and rest. Nearby is a nice carousel that they enjoyed. And of course a gift shop on the way out.
All in all I think this zoo is well worth the price. We could have stayed longer but wanted to leave before we all got tired.
