  • Great day especially for children, and a reasonably priced eatery on the grounds. Plenty to watch and read, but ofcourse animals and the like have a mind of their own, so every day is different. 
  • We visited the Zoo by accident, didn't plan it at all, but had some spare time and decided to drop by. It turned out to be the best decision of the day. The Zoo is wonderful. It is about the same size...  more »
  • We love this Zoo! It is very doable to get around to most exhibits in an afternoon. The surroundings are lush and beautiful as you walk from place to place. Penguins and Flamingos are our favorite!

  • I love my local zoo.
  • I had a hard time to understand how can this place receive so many positive reviews. I took my family to this zoo at 2pm Sept 24, 2016 (Saturday). It was a good day with clear sky and beautiful sunshine. We, a gang of four human, were able to found 16 animals in total--- that's roughly $1 per animal for each person. The zoo does a wonderful job at separating animals from visitors so that animals have a happy, natural living space. But, maybe you want to install a few cameras, that way people and kids won't stand in front of an empty window and have nothing to talk about.
  • This is one of the better views in the country. The exhibits are nice and the selection of animals is very nice. It's got a nice layout, so you can see most everything without too much confusion. They've also got a good selection of presentations and shows throughout the day. This is great for getting information and education on different animals. The staff seemed very helpful and willing to explain things, even when they were in the middle of other jobs. It feels like there's a genuine care for the animals and environment at the zoo.
  • This is a very family friendly zoo. The area here is very nice and there is a good variety of animals. Food selection is good and prices are not too bad. My only gripe is that since it is a smaller zoo, there are only son many animals. Some look a bit lonely since to do not get large groups of their same species together like other larger zoos get.
  • Highly recommended Zoo! Easily to spend whole day! Unforgettable for adults and kids place, even when it's raining. Natural vast spaces, variety of species's make this Zoo interesting for everyone. Parking lot is huge, costs 6$ now. All information about events and tickets you can find on the zoo website.
