  • We took the bus as far as the Witte and then spent a couple hours meandering back. Even off season the Japanese garden is lovely. It was a nice day and the place was alive but so massive I wouldn’t....  more »

  • We had a great time. It was really hot the day we went and the shade can be hard to come by. Most of the buildings seemed to be cooled by fan as opposed to AC. Going green I guess. It wasn't terrible for us, we live here. The park is beautiful and there's plenty of ways to view the critters. Lots of places to get drinks and snacks. And lots of clean restrooms. Some of the younger staff could have been friendlier, but they were helpful. Overall a great visit.
  • This was such a beautiful place and this was my first time visiting since I was a kid. I wish I would have taken pictures here but I definitely know that I'm going to go back here with my friend or boyfriend because this place is just great for quality time with someone. There were quite a lot of people when I went but it was so cool seeing everyone looking around and marveling at the surroundings. Anyway, come here and see this place, it's worth it.
  • Amazing, beautiful. Can't get tired of watching how beautiful nature is. We enjoyed going up the hill and loved the view from the top. We got there early enough that we took lots of pics. But by noon it was packed and people wouldn't stop passing if you wanted to take a pic. So get there early to enjoy the serenity.
  • This was a wonderful place to spend the day! Although we did go in August so it was very hot, there are plenty of places to get free cups of water. There are also places to get pressed pennies all over and wax figures of animals. I use to get them when I was little and it was so fun to be able to share this with my own kids! The Austrailia exhibit was happening while we were there (the whole reason we went in fact) and we were able to (pay to) interact with the red kangaroos. The price I felt was very reasonable for this once in a lifetime experience. The price to feed the giraffes was also reasonable to me (seven dollars per person) 1. Because it is my son's favorite animal so fulfilling a dream and 2. Because I know it is over $20 other places. I know the zoo is old and feels dated in places but they are working hard to make improvements and you can see new exhibits pretty much every time you visit. Thank you to the team and staff that are helping protect these wonderful animals and bring public attention to those that otherwise would not be know here in the states.
  • Great place to visit all day with family and out of town of local friends. Reasonable admission and discounts for students, veterans, and AAA card holders. Handicap accessible. Take in the butterfly garden, reptile house, and all sorts of local and exotic birds as well as sea life. Extremely educational and full of animal rescues!
