Rather disappointing visit. The whole place looks like it needs a makeover in terms of decent enclosures. A plus were the bears & their rescue story. That’s great. However it was rather lacking in animals on our visit, obviously hiding from the crowds. The kids...More

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice review. We're planning on installing extra toilet facilities at the far end of the park in the not too distant future, probably by the bear enclosure. Thanks!

If you followed all of the trail it's about one mile of walking, but the trails are in 3 sections so you can pick and choose areas that interest you.
