We try to go once every summer. There animals are always well kept and have plenty of them. In my opinion it's the best zoo around.

Great place to take kids ... duh it’s a zoo. So as expected kids were in awe. So that was great. Park could have a better layout to be more organized. Park personnel were friendly. It was our third time in our year membership. Kinda...More

This zoo does have a large variety of animals, including the two pandas. In addition, it also has other interesting features we were surprised to find in a zoo, but enjoyed just the same. One of those is the Ripley's Believe It or Not Building....More

I suggest contacting the zoo through their website for your peace of mind. And not much within walking distance either, but lots of good restaurants. Don't miss Tom Lee Park while you're in the city, seeing the sun set over... More
