“Good day out.”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

My wife and I just wanted something to do so we took a ride to the zoo. The staff were great and the grounds were really clean. The animals looked to be well taken care of. The reptile house was really nice. It was nice to see so many school children there learning about the different species of animals.

“Not a bad place to spend a few hours”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We have went to this zoo quite a few times, as it is relatively close to our house. The Zoo is a good place to spend a few hours with the family. I don't recall the price of admission but do know it was cheaper than the Central Park Zoo and also larger. They have a very large collection of rattlesnakes that the kids loved. They also had a snow leopard and a few other small cats. You are not going to see tigers and lions in this zoo as most of the animals are of the smaller variety. There is a small petting farm for the kids and they also have horseback riding for the kids. The parking is free!! Go to the Zoo but don't expect too much.

“It's a Zoo......”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Better off visiting the Bronx zoo, way better, more animals. It's fine for a quick hour or two with your kids but nothing spectacular.
