Just visited this zoo with my grandson (almost 4), he loved the fossil dig, milking the cow and seeing the dinosaur exhibit. I enjoyed the penguins, birds, elephants and other animals.

it was the first time in about 20 years that my husband and I visited the zoo-since our children were in school and took field trips here. There is a dinosaur exhibit which the kids visiting enjoyed very much.

A few yrs ago with my kids, now with my grandkids. Great to spend the day with the young once. I always love their faces when contact with nature. I hope they will bring more exhibits.

The entrance and parking are great. The layout of the zoo is a circle and easy to follow. Just enough commerical stands and great exhibit explainations. Collection is interesting, wolf and elephant exhibits are top notch

It is a caring zoo and came back to see the baby elephant which was only 6 months old the first time I saw it. They have a decent outside area to be in. All the animals seemed to be well looked after and happy.
