    Great zoo for a family-manageable size. More enjoyable than far bigger zoos like the Bronx Zoo. Just more fun and a more intimate learning experience for children.

    Although smaller than others like Granby or Toronto Zoos this is very good value for your money at under $30 for the entire family. Everything is clean and very well laid out.

    This zoo is rather small when compared to some of the other big city zoos, that being said they do have a very diverse collection of animals.
    We went on a Monday and being early in the school year there were no groups of school children, so the crowds were non existent. The zoo is very well laid out for easy navigation for wheelchairs or strollers.
    I highly recommend it for a casual low stress getaway ternoon.

    My husband and I visited this zoo yesterday (hadn't been to a zoo in a while). We were very disturbed by what we saw. When we went past the Fisher cage (like a weasel), he/she was frantically pacing back and forth from gate enclosure to gate enclosure. Frantically, neurotically, clearly a behavioral disturbance from being enclosed. I am an RN and could see immediately what this behavior represented. It was sad, disturbing and upsetting. I contacted the zoo and they never responded. I asked them to give the animal a larger enclosure at least, maybe...Read More

When we went past the Fisher cage (like a weasel), he/she was frantically pacing back and forth from gate enclosure to gate enclosure. Frantically, neurotically, clearly a behavioral disturbance from being enclosed. I am an RN and could see immediately what this behavior represented. It was sad, disturbing and upsetting. I contacted the zoo and they never responded. I asked them to give the animal a larger enclosure at least, maybe put another animal in w/ it. Nothing, nada, no response. How many other animals display this behavior? I can't imagine my own pet living like this, let alone any animal or pet.
