Last spring, they didn't have the giraffe feeding availlable yet, so we really enjoyed doing that this time. The animals all looked in great condition, and their habitats were clean and there were plenty of workers tending them. The Wild Bird Walk-About is always great....More

We had a great visit that had something for everyone, including feeding lettuce leaves to a giraffe up close and comfortable. We went on a Friday so it wasn't too crowded and loved seeing the elephants bathing! Great time!

This zoo is a great size for kids to explore. I would say it takes 1-1 1/2 hours to explore. The selection of animals is limited but animal types hit the highlights. The zoo landscaping and interactive exhibits are very well planned.
