It poured the day we went but since a lot of the animals are inside it was still enjoyable. Part of the zoo was under construction while we were there. They are putting an arctic section in that looks like it will be a great addition to the zoo. All the animals looked well cared for. The enclosures were fairly large and clean. We loved the rain forest and spent a long time in there. We were a little disappointed in the farm section. There weren't many animals in the farm and the "real chores" they tell you about on their website consisted of pretending to muck out a stall. There are plenty restrooms along the way. The concession stand was moderately priced but didn't have a lot of oppositions. If it's a nice day you can have a picnic in the park next to the zoo parking lot.
