Overview
More
This extraordinary zoo, one of the oldest in the U.S., underwent a multi-million dollar renovation in the 1980s and is still expanding. Its landscaping replicates the natural habitats of the numerous animals, some of which are endangered species. Four panda bears from China delight the crowds, and groups of gorillas separated by moats do their own share of entertaining.

The animals were beautiful. The staff very friendly and educated. However, the whole place seemed very antiquated and unfair to the animals. They need a serious facelift and updated way to house the animals. Made us very sad. It was a treat to see the...More

This zoo is something special. The Panda's are worth coming to see. If you see nothing else, the Panda's are really cool.

Make sure you use the map they give you or you’ll miss something. Not a clear path to cover entire place. Have to back track a bit. Was able to see animals not at my Home zoo. Staff was friendly and helpful. Will go back.

Daughter loves zoo and we try to visit zoos when traveling. This one was better than some. They do have a myriad of animals and the day we were there, most of them were out and could be seen.
