We spent about 3 hours at this free zoo. There are many areas to see but many animals were not on display. The elephants, penguins, and grizzly bears were fun to watch. Handicap accessible with close parking.

This zoo is ridiculous. In a good way. Quite possibly the best zoo I’ve ever been to. We stayed for 4 hours just walking around. I took so many pictures and had an amazing time. I loved this zoo. Absolutely recommend to anyone. Everyone.

We went without children but still enjoyed it. It's a lovely place for a long afternoon stroll. It was a cool day and many of the animals were outside.

There is a lot to see at the zoo. A shorter sunnier day may be preferred.
