Lots of animals to see, just made some great renovations. Love the lions den and the monkey houses. They have a great kids play area that my little one loves where they can also get wet if they choose.

We love to visit the zoo and they have done a lot of upgrades over the last few years. The zoo is a great place for the family to spend an afternoon.

I haven't visited the zoo for quite a few years. They've undergone quite a transformation. New exhibits, new areas. My family and I really enjoyed watching the elephant show as well as the bird show. Favorite exhibit was Rocky shores and the elephant seals. We...More

My wife and I spent about two hours and saw it all. We didn't stop for any of the shows, and it did rain on us a bit, so we hid out under cover for a few minutes. We also took time to eat lunch. We don't have kids we were... More
