Loved everything about it. Only a few animals not on display. If I lived closer I would go every week.

I feel the enclosures were not big enough for the animals. They seemed cramped up and unhappy. I have been to a lot of zoos and this one was just OK. I feel they need to do more to make the animals comfortable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit at the Zoo. We took our grandson who was just turning 3 years of age. We made such good memories and the park was perfect.
