I really enjoyed this zoo, as it had many of the animals you would expect, and plenty of shady places to enjoy in the middle of the August heat. Our tickets were 1/2 off for some reason, but are typically $30 + $5 for parking.

This zoo is laid out extremely well making it easy to walk the whole zoo and see all exhibits. Unfortunately, a lower rate is not offered if you go late like some other zoos. They do stay open an hour after closing for those already...More

Many great exhibits for the whole family at a very affordable price.. I have been coming here for the last 50 years and the exhibits change several times as new things come in. A must see if you come to our city.

Loved the zoo! The monkeys were our favorite 😊 we were afraid of the heat that we wouldn't be able to see all of the animals, but most of the animals were out and having fun!

If you only have 2 hours - I would suggest a different attraction - the zoo will cost 2 adults about $40-50 entry fee and parking - and it will take you 2 hours just to walk all the trails in the zoo without stopping to look... More
