I liked the variety of animals. The giraffe exhibit is one of the nicest there. I found the prairie dogs interesting too. Saw a roadrunner for the first time! Some of the exhibits are closed during weekdays and you don't get the full experience. The price is right though.

It is worth it to go, they have things like sleepover night to see animals in nocturnal habitats! Great trail to walk on and the animals are easy to see.

Took me a few minutes to find it but I loved it. Has one of the best lion exhibits I've ever seen. And also tiger exhibits.

Every animal was actively moving around. This made the visit even more enjoyable. I really enjoyed the entire visit!

I have been to this zoo a couple of times and love it! It is not that large, which means you can see all the animals and exhibits without becoming exhausted. They have some critically endangered animals and great conservation information throughout the park. I love the way the zoo is sectioned into which continents the animals are from such as Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Parking is free and they have a nice military discount on tickets. Definitely check out the giraffe feeding and sea lion feeding! This zoo is very clean, rarely crowded, and has great staff. Bring sunscreen, water, and snacks to stay refreshed and comfortable throughout your zoo adventure. I definitely recommend this for anyone!
