The zoo is not large, but the exhibits are well presented and clean. It was the first day after several rainy days. There were lots of mud puddles, but the animals were out and active.

Cheap admission and great animals. The Red Panda alone is worth the visit. Unlike most zoo's, you can actually see most of the animals.
