    The worst Zoo have ever seen in my life. If it is already bad idea to have the animals locked up in such small spaces, even worse idea is to have them so bad. It is a Zoo more that that looks like a prison for animals. Completely old. Neglected animals. The habitat of the penguins broken completely the styrofoam and an injured Penguin. They should close it and relocate to the poor animals.

    even though I don't like caged animals, I have to admit that the zoo is well maintained. Become eco park is very good

    I was five years ... it seems that this year has decreased a lot and are removing animals (didn't join in 2017). But it is super cute. Worth it if you don't want to go away for a few that are worth to shame.
