    Love coming here on Easter but you have to be here as soon as they open because it gets crowded. We leave after eat lunch watching the monkey's. :-)

    Don't visit the zoo when it just opened except if you're gonna be there for a while. It's a good collection of Animals but the place isn't as great

    The botanical gardens are okay but the animals seem kind of stressed because of the few space that they have... Make sure you put on solar screen. Here's a picture of a baby duiker and durunuk.

    Nice clean zoo. It's a nice place to spend the day with the kids. Though, don't go when is extremely hot. You have to walk a lot and it's horrible when it's extremely hot. The zoo is quite big.

    We liked it and it worth the visit, but unfortunately it was an extremely hot summer day and most of the animals where inside their caves :(

    Get in at least 3 hours prior to closing. They put the larger animals in an hour before closing.

    Gets pretty cold at night and definitely smells like a zoo. Much larger than you'd expect though, so be prepared to walk!

    Not a bad place to check out, especially when they have events during summer nights .. Drinks and good food trucks with live music while you walk the park ..

    During the summer, KCRW presents Roaring Nights. No children allowed means an adult-only night in the park with your favorite food trucks, alcoholic beverages, and things that go bump in the night.

    Best place to bring kids, get some outdoor exercise or have a stroll with a beer in hand. Yearly membership beats any gym or kids place fees.

    If short on time or want to avoid a lot of hot walking Take shuttle for $2 a head to back of zoo and walk down to entrance. First shuttle stop/start is just past marketplaces 200 yards past entrance.

    This place seemed amazing from the enormous entrance sign but what a disappointment. We walked endlessly and didn't see much. Sign out front: beware of bees is true they are everywhere & will attack.

    Worst zoo experience I ever had. Most of the exhibits were closed. Other exhibits were not laid out in a manner to where you could see the animals (I.e. tall grass and inclines)
  • Sunflowergrl A.
    Today was the fundraiser. Therefore no vendors,food place closed, and guess what? There was 3 elephants and a hippo. Pretty sad now that a fundraiser is happening do we actually get to see the animals
