    When I go I love to eat a popsicle or popcorn and feed the ducks! It's always nice to feed

    You will have a great three hours seeing active animals moving around except the Lion! Also, check out the train outside the zoo if you have kids. It is worth spending $3.50 for the train .

    Members evening at the zoo - much of the zoo is closed by 8, no food or other vending. Long lines for carousel and other special events. Not worth the trip.

    Its a Zoo. If you like animals and long walks its great. They have many places to eat that will gladly rip you off and give you school cafe food. Bonus tip bring your own lunch they allow it.

    Was broken hearted there were no giraffes or camels or sea lions or polar bears or jaguars. This zoo definitely needs lots of improvement.

    I know some of the vending machines are expensive, but, keep in mind that all proceeds go to support the zoo. :)

    Best to come as soon as it opens.. More animals are out due to less heat. Bring your own bottles of water! :-)

    Be sure to catch the hippos' feeding time! They are most active just before and you can watch them get up out of the water. Feeding time is around 445PM
