I hadn't been there in years, and really enjoyed the day with my local sister in law and my 2 grandkids ages 3 and 4. The train ride was fun, but scenically speaking, what you mostly saw was the back side of buildings and the perimeter of the zoo with the exception of a great view of 2 lions. There was a event surrounding dinosaurs, and my 3 year old grandson is a dino fanatic. We thoroughly enjoyed it, the 2 large "dinosaurs" were amazing to look at. There was a face painter who did an awesome job. Sadly many of the exhibits were closed and many of them housed unseen animals, a problem in many zoos. The giraffe exhibit, also visible from the train, was great, and we caught a quick glimpse of a gorilla. All in all, lovely weather (surprise!! it's always lovely there) a nice day outdoors and some animal sightings. Parking is easy, admission price not too bad....we'd probably go again.
