    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 .

  • Tris S.

    Was nice, clean, people we're friendly and the exhibits were great!

    Tris Saucier · July 5, 2014

    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.

    Very accessible with a clear route to visit all the parts of the park. No crowds early during the week. Typical fast food offerings in the new restaurant. Free parking!

    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.

  • Abby L.

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

  • Rosey A.

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

    Rosey Abuabara · May 20, 2013
  • Angie R.

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

    Plan to visit the Butterfly Exhibit late on the day, between 5 and 6. It is less crowded and the butterflies are less timid!
