  • We are members and have been for 4 years. The kids never get bored, we do 5 or 6 visits per year. Usually we go in summer, but recently tried a trip on a warm day in February, it was the best. All the animals were out. Try the of season.
  • For such a small state we have a great zoo. Top notch care is given to the animals. The zoo also works hard to stop extinction in a species along with other zoos across the country.
  • Great place, the park is super beautiful and has many things to do. The only down side was that I went during an off season so not every exhibit was open plus there was a lot of construction going on but that's to be expected considering the time of year I went.
  • Super grate park to with friends and family full of joy and fun! You should come over and bring you family. Is a lot of activities.
  • Had a great time seeing the animals but the food was horrible. I ordered a turkey, bacon wrap that was 1 slice of highly processed turkey, salad bacon bits and mostly lettuce. I spit it out and threw a $7 sandwich after one bite. The food options in the winter are very limited. I will bring food next time or eat before I go.
