I am a bit surprised at how highly this zoo is rated. This is a good zoo. Pretty, maintained grounds. We recently went to the Columbus Zoo, which we enjoyed much more. Perhaps because it seemed the animals had larger exhibit spaces. I have never seen so many animals behind glass in small rooms as here. Some exhibits left us depressed as to the space the animal had, such as the cats/elephants. We thought the insect house and the nocturnal house were the best parts of the zoo. Disappointed we did not get to see the otters (?) Our nearby zoo - Binder Park zoo's giraffe exhibit, puts this one to shame. Considering it is in the middle of the city... I guess it is not bad.
Only recommend this if you happen to be in the area, would not drive hours to go here.More
