  • My husband and I went on a rainy day, umbrellas in hand. There are signs at the entrance reading prepaid ticket holders only, but you may purchase at the park. We had a peaceful day enjoying the animals and the lanterns throughout the park. The lanterns were for Chinese new year I believe. They were beautiful. The park has wonderful areas for children. If I lived near here I'd buy an annual pass!
  • This zoo is not only amazing for a specific event it is huge and wonderful for an everyday visit. Plenty of animal exhibits around every corner. Reasonably priced and such a nice stroll for several hours. The path and restrooms are always clean. Free parking. I have been taking my daughter here for 20 yrs.
  • My first time at this very do-able zoo. Nice size, well maintained grounds, animals seem well cared-for. The concessions were decent, for zoo fare, and better than many other zoo concessions. Staff masked, restrooms in good shape. Recommended.
  • This place is ok because it has lots of animals from the zoo
  • Such a great mid size zoo. Perfect for kids. Not to big, and not too small. They really seem to take pride in everything there from the animal habitats, to the petting zoo, to the food. The area around the zoo is a great park as well. Can't go wrong.
