Some areas were very nice and attractive, but many others not really much. Maybe the new area ready to open will bring more attraction.

This zoo had very nice ambiance and the habitats were very well done. However, they didn't have a lot of animals that my local small zoo had (koala, panda). It was worth $10

Very clean environment! Nice selection of animals and lots of pretty sights to see as you walk around. Diverse goods available in the gift shops around the zoo. Fun for kids and adults.

Great zoo. Our family enjoyed the day. You can feed the giraffes. Workers give you greens to feed them.

We were pleasantly surprised that mom’s received free admission today. It was a very crowded day, but we enjoyed the exhibits. The giraffes were our favorite animals to visit today. The zoo was easy to navigate with a stroller.

We had a great time. Exhibits were great. Only downside: Great Apes exhibit is closed for a remodel.

Tropical plants and animals in natural settings, spacious and compact. We walked about 3 miles over a few hours and enjoyed most of the zoo, will return again for the scheduled shows and a train ride with the little ones.

There is a discount. The price would be $17.95 and you need some sort of military identification.

They are made of a hard plastic and just big enough for two smaller (2-3 year olds) kids to lay down on. I would recommend a towel or blanket to put down on the bottom of the stroller. I’m not sure of the age of your kids... More

I’m not sure if there is one at the zoo. However, there are places, such as the gasoline station near by that have one. The next time I’m there I will look for one.
