I saw some reviews where people complained about this zoo, but my family loved it! We live outside of New Orleans and have a wonderful zoo here. I knew this zoo had pandas though, so I was sold right away!
There's a ton of shade, so it was nice and cool. Most of the animals you can get really close to, so that was great. Our daughter loved the pandas.
There was a carousel, rock climbing wall and train as far as the rides went. The carousel was really nice and the train ride was nice but it didn't go far at all. It would've been nice if they had one that went around a large portion of the zoo. We didn't do the rock climbing wall as our daughter is only two.
They had a few different animals as well that I had never seen or heard of. They had a red panda, which looks like a fox, and meerkats. Oh, and they even had labels on various plants around the park. There were many beautiful trees and plants throughout the zoo.
The only disappointment or rather aggravation, was that the Nathan's hot dog stand wasn't open, so we had to go where they said they were available and they weren't. We wound up going back to the original place for lunch to get the hot dogs.
