This is a serious zoo! We were amazed a city this size would have a really great zoo. Easy to get around, great displays not crowded and very clean and odor free.

I have been to the zoo several times. Pretty much each time there are quite a few animals that are unable to be seen as they are sleeping or hidden behind things.

We love this zoo. It's a great place to spend a 2 to 3 hours and get in a little over a 2 mile hike. Some good interaction with the animals. We thoroughly enjoyed the male orangutan who was lying on his back and giving...More

I would agree with all, 2 hours is a good amount of time. Can you walk through the whole thing in an hour, yes. But to stop and watch, play on the slides and stuff, maybe have a drink on the deck... Two hours plus. If you... More
