We took our 5 year old grandson to the Turtle Back Zoo, and both he and we enjoyed the visit. This is the perfect place for kids to run around: small enough for them to run free, big enough that they're not bored. Plan a 3 to 4 hour adventure to keep kids interested. My grandson's favorite was the petting area followed by the sea lions. The railroad was free, but he wasn't too interested. The zoo is very clean and well kept. There is a bit of walking, and slightly hilly, but nothing unmanageable. There are benches all over: anyone in reasonable shape will have no problem. There is a Cafe with a decent selection, a bit pricey, but not terrible, and, we agreed, better quality than many such facilities. There are a number of picnic areas that are sheltered to sit and bring your lunch. Parking is free, and there is a free shuttle to remote parking areas. The only disappointment was we thought the bathrooms could use some attention.
