  • 16.50 for 1 adult and 1 child with a boat ride that was about 6 minutes of riding. Just about every thing was sleeping are hidden. Was not as many animals as was before. The only thing good about it was the park. Most of the stiff you get to see you can go to a river and see. The kids did have fun in the water but that's about it
  • A great zoo and botanical gardens! Animals have enough space to move around and look healthy. Easy paths to walk. Wheelchair and stroller rental. Gift shop and snack shack.
  • This place was so awesome and more than worth the money! Plenty of animals to see, playground area, splash pad area, train, boat rides, and super friendly staff. We went during their "winter hours" even though it is March so not sure if they allow or do the following things during their peak season-Today I saw people who had brought in an ice chest and snacks. Also I was able to get one of their "fun" strollers for free. We will definitely be coming back!
  • Lots of adorable animals and well kept my only complaint is how close some of the animals are to the road with only a chain link fence between them.
  • This was very relaxing not to mention the children loved it we had a blast we will go back
