    What a wonderful zoo! I always look for zoos when I travel and decided to take my 10 month old son around this one. Every exhibit was immaculate and the animals looked so happy and healthy.

    Kids love the zoo. Definitely worth taking them to the family events that are provided. Membership is also a huge plus! Don't have to have a giant zoo to keep the kids happy.

    Not as elaborate as other big city zoos, but still a good place to go. Our kids love it and it’s not overly expensive. They’ve made several improvements in recent years and continue to do so.
