    A great place to spend time with your kids. I always get an elephant ear and shaved ice when I go there.

    2nd Tuesday of every month is $4 admission. New elephant exhibit is coming along nicely.

    The zoo keys are fun to have but, the boxes take a while to talk about the animals. It's just fun for little kids to have a little key of their own.

    Avoid the food. Go across the parking lot and eat at the Children's Museum. No need to have a ticket.

    Food choices are shameful. Lots of construction. Still a nice zoo.

    Well, i think that the reptiles are the best! But it takes so long to get to them!

    Zoo membership is the best deal. Can include zoolights option. Discounted food prices with membership.

    The baby elephants are the most precious animals there!

    Great zoo. Be on the lookout for roaming peacocks. Ride the zoo train to the rose gardens.

    Be careful, this place can be a zoo if you go at the wrong time. If you go at the right time it can be a zoo too.

    Sunday mornings before 11 are great. You see everything before it gets too crowded.

    When it's not summer go during the week when it first opens. Not a lot of people and the animals are up and about.

    Pack a lunch. Lots of tables and benches all over. We packed our own sandwiches and water. Water water water! You're going to walk a lot.

    Don't miss the bats, especially if it's 3:00 PM—feeding time.

    True story: the drinks don't come with straws after someone threw one in an animal pen and a goat choked on it.

    There's a geocache in the Great Northwest area, but cell signal is poor in that area of the zoo, so look it up ahead of time. You'll need the description to open the lock.

    Alison Bazeley · May 26, 2013
  • Laura A.

    It was great going on a Wednesday in April, not too many people and the weather was perfect! All the animals were out! Great day at the zoo!

    We get there when the gates open. Better parking spaces and less of a crowd. Especially on Sundays!
