Good place for all ages, not huge but plenty to see. You can really get great pictures because the animal compounds are closer to the fencing than I've seen at other zoos.

My family of young adults, my husband and myself had a great few hours walking through the Zoo. It is small but they have a good variety of animals and many zoo keeper talks with the visitors. In the few hours we were there, we listened to a zookeeper talk and demonstration at the sea otter cage and the tortoise... More

If you expect same as large zoo then you will be disappointed. Very small zoo and no huge exhibits. But, you will not be crowded and you won't break the bank. For two adults and two kids it was $23. Kids liked getting up and close for the otter and seal feeding. Staff was nice and knowledgeable. Large gift shop.... More

I took the kids in February when they had free admission on Friday's, it was a beautiful 70 degree day!!! We saw most of the animals out and about. The flamingos must have been locked up and were sad to not be able to see them. I enjoy the otters and I'm excited that they just had 2 pups. The... More

I may be biased because I am a local, but I love our zoo. There are so many learning opportunities packed here. There is a self guided rainforest room, and always a ton of volunteers and staff around to help answer questions and engage the kiddos. We go often and still spend over 2 hours. You cannot miss the river... More
