It was cold and windy outside but it was also easy to warm up inside the various animal exhibits. You just can't beat this free zoo, especially if you park a short walk away on the side of the road, you will save $10.

The Christmas light display was awesome. The staff were the best. Very clean & well maintained. Would love to see it during the day when the animals were out. We mostly only saw the beautiful light displays but no animals. Loved the atmosphere!
