I just can’t with this zoo. I’m not bringing my kids back. Some animals look like they’re having fun (penguins), others (lions) look like they’re waiting for death.

I've taken all my ex girl friends to this zoo, it's fun to go to, animals are well taken care of. Food is limited so are bathrooms, but it's an amazing place to go to when it's nice out!

The zoo is a great place to take the family for a 1-3 hour experience. You determine how much time you want to spend. There’s enough to see indoors if the weather isn’t good or a nice walk among the animals in good weather. Our...More

Took grandsons on a beautiful sunny morning. It was crazy, since everyone else had the same idea, but a wonderfully kept educational, fun experience for the kids. Love it

Always an enjoyable family experience to take the kids to. Rotating exhibits. Plenty to see indoors and out.
