This zoo is not particularly large and there was major construction underway during my visit (September 2017). There is adequate free parking. Not a bad way to kill a couple of hours if you are in the neighborhood.

I go here a few times a year to entertain my little ones. Never too busy so you get a good look at whatever you want. They are always improving.

It's a zoo. It's about average in terms of zoos. It has some neat features and a nice way to spend 2-3 hours with the family.
