Free parking. No military discount. DO NOT GO ON A COLD DAY. I want on a coldish day, paid $19 and only got to see 5 animals. Very rude staff. Overpriced food and shop.

This nice zoo with a large selection of animals in nice enclosures. Included are polar bears, chimps, grizzlys, penguins and more so you can visit year round. Pay the extra for the penguin encounter for a real close-up treat.
