The zoo is split into three major sections: animals of the Americas, animals of Asia, and animals of Africa. Take the opportunity to visit the critically endangered species housed here, like the Amur leopard, Mexican wolves, and the Aruba rattlesnake. Kids will enjoy a ride on the African Star Train through the African exhibit to see animals like giraffes, zebras, and ostriches. To learn more, attend one of the zoo's animal training sessions or meet with zoo staff at one of the educational programs offered in several exhibits.

  • Love the zoo. It has just grown and grown and every visit there is something new. The staff is friendly and always willing to answer questions. The animals, facilities, and walkways are well maintained. Great place to visit and large enough to spend 3 or 4 hours at. Very kid friendly.
  • The event was an after hours sports themed evening. The animals were out and active. I took our 23 month old grandson and he had a blast!
  • Nice variety of animals and reptiles and birds. Gift shop was a bit pricey though. Prices of admission have gone up too. Nonetheless family spent a good and relaxing time there.
  • We took my grandson for his first visit to the zoo. We had a great time. We enjoyed the animals. They have a water playground for the children and great eating and snacking places.
  • Went here on a really warm day. Zoo was nice size and many parts were shaded surprisingly. If you live in area look into doing a year pass as they offer competitive prices.
