    A great way to kill a few hours, however I don't recommend going in the afternoon in late summer. Not many animals were out, and the heat was killer. On average though the zoo is enjoyable.

    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 .
