We went to hear a New Orleans based band on a beautiful summer evening. The band was fun, lively and quite entertaining. The space was glorious. We loved being surrounded by huge Cottonwood trees at the zoo band shell.

Beautiful gardens, well laid out and a very interesting farm. If the weather is hot go early and leave the Aquarium until last.

The Biological Park houses the botanic gardens and the aquarium. Both were worth the visit and the aquarium was particularly focused on ecological issues and a most effective way..

The Aquarium will need at least an hour and the Zoo at least 2+ hours. The Biological Park will need 2+ hours. Enjoy
