Lots of empty enclosures in this park when we visited so very disappointed. The saving grace was tha the grizzly bears were active so that was good to see. The meerkat house was also disappointing. A handful of meerkats only. Not worth the $12.50 entry...More

We had the chance to walk through, while there was still a little bit of snow left on the ground. The sun was shining, all the animals were out, and it was beautiful. This is a great place to spend an afternoon

The animal exhibits are good and the education centre is engaging, but the sheer amount of excrement means that we have stopped going, even after buying a membership. The children's play area is through a tunnel, which is good fun for the kids to run...More

Great place for a family gathering to explore the wildlife at the zoo and then relax in the comfort of the park picnic areas or enjoy running around with your grandkids.
