This was a day out to the zoo. The kids really love it. It was nice feeding the giraffes. Everything is well maintained. The swim park was in maintenance so we couldn't go there. We sure will next time!

We visit annually because it is a fun time. This year we did visit a bit later in the season and was disappointed that there were not enough lifeguards working for everything to be opened at the same time.
