Owner description: This extraordinary zoo, one of the oldest in the U.S., underwent a multi-million dollar renovation in the 1980s and is still expanding. Its landscaping replicates the natural habitats of the numerous animals, some of which are endangered species. Four panda bears from China delight the crowds, and groups of gorillas separated by moats do their own share of entertaining.

Pandas! Good selection of animals. No hills! Animals have enrichment items and beautiful climbing structures. Friendly, knowledgeable keepers and docents.

We were a little disappointed by the size of the zoo and the quality of the exhibits. We go to the Minnesota Zoo at home so we are used to bigger and more natural exhibits.

The zoo is not very big. I was surprised to be able to walk through it in 2 hours. We enjoyed the 5 minute train ride, but it would have been better if the train circled the entire zoo. The kids enjoyed the carousel with beautifully painted animals.
This isn't a place we will visit again.

we went with our 13 month old daughter. Get there early, because parking fills up quickly and you'll have to find street parking. Inside the zoo, there were several different paths to take, but overall, it was pretty small. Our daughter liked the "petting zoo" which was a coral of goats, and a couple sheep. We spent most of our time there. The train ride was a waste of 2.50 per person. Older children could get through it much faster than we did. The cafe we ate at was surprisingly good.
