  • Fun place. Lots to do went on a field trip with my son. He loved it he was five . staff is great and friendly.lots of activities for kids. Also fun little store. Great cheeses.
  • Overall I really enjoyed the visit. I. The bird area, an attendant kept yelling at my child and gave her so much anxiety she will not visit bird areas anymore and we left shortly thereafter. We loved and enjoyed the rest of zoo. I have felt very hurt and upset by the actions of the attendant towards my child. I realize she is not the most coordinated child but continually yelling at her does not make it better. We visited almost a year ago.
  • Love this place. We buy members passes every year and use them all summer. Great way to spend the day. If you are a member there are extra perks like night visits and early openings with less visitors. Lots of animals to see and zoo staff is very helpful. Just opened the oceans exhibit and we were very impressed .
