My 5 yr old grandson really enjoyed this zoo, and it was not too much walking for these two grandparents. Big cats, monkeys, koala bears, even a bald eagle.

We absolutely love visiting zoos. So we decided to stop at this one. They have a lot of animals. We got to watch them working with multiple animals so that was great! I definitely recommend this place.
