    Allow plenty of time to see everything! It took me 2h30 to walk the grounds by myself

    Get here early enough to make sure you can see the Amur tiger demonstration. Very impressive!

    Fun zoo but it's pretty small - if you plan to come a few times it worth buying the members pass. Good for kids as you don't have to walk too much.

    This zoo is awesome! Much better than Moscow zoo

    Incredibly kid friendly and a good coffee supply. Great variety of animals and you can always catch some sort of demo or info session

    Tim Connors · August 26, 2014

    Solid but too much walking for not enough animals

    Michael Cluzel · August 18, 2014

    My 1 and 4 year old boys loved it and a steal of a price right now!

    On a grey afternoon even w/o the island access there's still so much to see and do. Just ask my 4YO. Today we caught the Wagon Stage and visited the Dinosaurs.

    We visited the big cats a little after noon and they had just been fed. Very active! Also, one of the elephants is due to give birth in January of 2013!

    If you have kids them buy the wristband for the train and carousel to save some money.

    Hippos mark their territory by whispering sweet nothings... make sure you get as close as possible and be at the front of the line... ;)

    Pack a lunch, bring water bottles. It's cheaper and it reduces trash.

    Glynnis Frith · March 10, 2012
  • Mike M.

    Go on a snowy day you'll have the whole place yourself!

    Mike MacKenzie · February 26, 2012

    The line up for penguins is insane right now. 90+ minutes so be sure to get there for opening.

    Marshall Stevenson · February 20, 2012
  • Rebecca R.

    The penguins are here! Expect to wait in line for an hour to see them!

    aaaamazing *-* i like it

    Guilherme Richer · October 26, 2011
  • Lorna W.

    Not on the top of my list of best or favorite zoos. The gorillas are obviously distressed with a lack of stimulation and overall care of animals was basic. Importance seems to be placed on visitors.

    Lorna Westerby · September 30, 2011
  • Lauren C.

    Penguins will be coming in 2012. Make sure to check out the Canadian animals. Super cool to be that close to moose, muscox and bison (among others) Read more

    The best Place to look at animals. See the different amimals at the zoo including bears, birds and more.

    Don't even bother with the dinosaur section. There is nothing but a handful of statues and a lot of fake rock.
