Great place to take the family. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. The grounds are well maintained and it's easy to push a stroller around. The look out tower is worth the climb.

Hi,the hospital area is not included in the tour because of possibly disturbing the animals but were able to observe from a window outside.Again, I would suggest contacting them directly about blankets or other donations.
