  • A free zoo that has so much to offer kids and adults. It has a splash pad, large playground area a number of small and large animals and a great train ride. 
  • Great for any ages.The new water splash pad good for everyone. Lots of exhibits. Music in the park during summer. Lots of space for family reunions. Can walk along the river. 
  • Well, we do pay for it out of our utility bills, but seriously, we are very lucky to have this zoo. The sloths, capybara and otter are my favourites.
