    Medium sized zoo. It has a bit of everything. Must see tiger, anteater, giraffes, chimpanzees. Perfect for smaller kids to enjoy the animals up close for couple of hours.

    Not exactly the biggest zoo but decent size and great way to spend a few hours of the day and see all the cool animals and even some feedings you can do

    Nice enough Zoo, for a mid-sized city. The parking leaves a lot to be desired, however. Plan ahead or you'll be walking a long distance.

    Don't miss the chimpanzees! They are the highlight of the Zoo, climbing to the top of their cage, chasing each other around, and grooming each other.

    For fun, look for a batman symbol, giant fork, a hummingbird, and duck feet at the zoo. They're all "hidden mickeys" around the zoo.

    Did you know? The Zoo opened in 1927 with a diverse collection of 40 animals, mostly gathered from area parks, including monkeys, raccoons, birds, deer and various other small animals. Read more

    I'm 5'11" and barely fit on the train; it was quite uncomfortable.

    Avoid the train unless you want to wait in line for a half an hour.

    If you need to change a diaper and find the restroom space awful, use the picnic area near the carousel ... Deserted most of the time.

    Kids need to be 42in to ride the carousel alone as there are no safety belts.

    Cold days/mornings are best to see the hyena and the snow leopards. Trill your tongue to get the kookaburra to laugh.
