We really enjoyed the zoo. It was not crowded, the kids loved the exhibits and being so close to the animals. It was clean and the park outside was great. Beautiful spot.

We hit a perfect day to visit the zoo with three year old. Landscaping, flowers thrive thruout the park. Exhibits of animals allow for up close viewing. Animals appear well cared for and their environment maintained. Nice scale zoo park....not too big and overwhelming.
