It's an ok Zoo but not as good as others. If you are with your Grandkids or young children it is worth the trip but I don't think I would spend my time again.

I love the new updates to the zoo. The new Giraffe feeding times were awesome! My granddaughter loves feeding the lettuce to the giraffe. The new playground area is great also. My granddaughters also love riding the train and Merry go round

The zoo has gotten better but still a small zoo. And you have to pay extra to go on a tiny train ride that doesn't last very long or go very far. You also have to pay extra to ride on the carousel. I didn't...More

The habitats seems cleaner, the animals happier.... Maybe it was because I came during the summer this time and not the winter. Food in the concessions was good... pricey but that is to be expected. There was more staff seen around if you needed help....More

Right now they have some babies that are just adorable. It was very hot when we went, but they have misting fans that help a ton! It is a cool place for kids and adults.
