I’ve been going to this zoo for years. Very family friendly! The aquarium is great, full of many fish. Animals are always out and active. During the summer this is a fun splash pad for the kids. The lights before Christmas is a must see!

There are many hands on exhibits with volunteers to interact with kids. various feeding times and a kid specific play area. This zoo also hosts many great musical acts; Chicago for instance. The Lights at Christmas are fabulous!
