I absolutely love this zoo. Everything is groomed and the animals have ample space to excerise. The back of the zoo has the savanna which has free roaming giraffe and zebra as well as other species. There is a indoor bird aviary that is stunning!!...More

This is a great zoo. It’s free they just ask for a donation. All the animals are usually out. It’s fun for all ages. I recommend going when it opens because it does get crowded.
