The zoo is great!

We love the zoo. We have the benefit of seeing everything from elephants to hippos to even animals found in the Australian outback.

Love this zoo. It is very clean and has a lot to see. Definitely plan on spending the day. Lots of walking cause it is quite spread out. Went with my daughter and friends and they had so much fun. Can't wait to go back.

We like the zoo so much that we bought a family pass. All the exhibits are great, our favorite is the elephant exhibit. The special events are outstanding, especially Boo At The Zoo.

Pleasant visit. Very walkable for my 10 y/o. Lots of animals were out and easily viewed. Highlight was probably the Rainforest Exhibit. Friendly staff.

We were lucky to get there right at 10 and found great FREE parking and enjoyed the rainforest first. The first level had snakes and spiders but the second floor had other nice animals.

A lot of good healthy walking to see some great exhibits of animals, reptiles and birds. I think my favorite were the giraffes. They are so beautiful and you can feed them Romaine!

They brought back zoo keys!!!!! A little magical key shaped like an elephant that instantly provides information about the animal exhibit you are viewing. So many different animals that all look healthy and well cared for. The zoo seems very committed to conservancy. Great time and had fun spending the day with my son. Kids will love it!
