We arrived at the zoo at 10:00 AM to discover their summer hours only go until 2:00 PM (7:00 AM - 2:00 PM), so we were immediately put in fast-track mode which seriously detracted from our ability to linger and enjoy the exhibits. I am...More

Visiting zoos and wildlife parks is something I find great pleasure in as it gives you an opportunity to step into the animal's natural habitat (or as close as possible to it), and capture candid moments of their typical behaviors. My husband took me here...More

I am a member of the zoo. This is a great place for everyone. Nice to just stop in and stroll around or take the family for a fun day trip.

Great escape and fun. Each time you go you will experience something different. Can be a bit pricy for a family trip.

Love the summer hours. It gave us the chance to visit early in the morning while it was cooler. Great zoo!

Zoo is laid out over a large area. Many of the animals hiding to get out of the sun. The train ride was AWFUL. The driver whizzed by the animal enclosures. Feeding the giraffe was the best. Will not be going back.
