We've been here a few times before. We like the way the animal enclosures are always clean, and the animals seem well fed. Absolutely loved the new elephant enclosure, a new asset to the zoo.

I have never been to a zoo before. Loved seeing animals up close. Can't afford to go to Africa. So much to see we took four hours had lunch. It was great.
