I was very surprised at how good this zoo was. It isn't as big as L.A. or San Diego, but very well done.

I enjoyed the area where they have these little monkeys everywhere and you have a chance that one might land on your head. Feeding the giraffe is almost scary but fun. All zoos are great! you will have fun!

Make sure you don't try to see the Zoo in mid-summer. All of the animals are hiding from the heat

We went there with our 9 month old baby and she loved it. Many of the animal areas we were able to stand next to the glass and see the animals up close. We fed the giraffes for $5 and that was by far our kid's favorite part of the trip. There is also a animal petting area with some very tame goats. The zoo is the right size for small kids, and not overwhelmingly big. We will be going again.

It's good to get away for a day. Not too expensive. Basic zoo. During the hot days, you can barely see any animals out.
