Take a swimsuit and towel for your kids! They love the water feature. It's great to have lunch outside and let the kids play in the water. Also, the climbing rocks are great fun in cooler months when the water feature is turned off. GO ON A TUESDAY...HALF PRICE!

The zoo has too much exhibits closed. They need to pay more attention to clean the areas. The tiger look too skinny. Overall most of the animals didnt look so happy. Its a big area but need more tlc.

We love this zoo! It's clean, fun and so very educational. We've had a membership for several years and it's worth every dime. My children are teens and still love it.

The Zoo was very kid friendly , But they would have more people visit if the food and drink's were more affordable !! I bought 2 bottles of water and 2 bottles of kids drinks $ 12.08 , can get that outside for less than $6.00 . Just looked at the food prices and realized I could've afford it , this is a problem when your Wife is a Diabetic !! I would like to say the Zoo is worth the trip .

Very pricey for everything. Once around a small circle on a camel was $5.50 per child. That said, I see why, they have spent a lot to make the grounds beautiful and animal enclosures spacious. We really enjoyed the children's area and the predators. The red pandas and their babies are adorable. Overall, a fun time.
