“Carol”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

WE love our zoo because it is a great place for families and the animals are displayed in very natural habitats. We have great events too - Zoo a la Carte in August is one of our favorites. The is good food from local restaurants and several venues with live music.

“Great Zoo- Kids loved it!”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

I love this zoo. So easy to get to and no lines. I especially like the lion house where you can sit next to the lions behind glass.

“Predator / Prey Exhibits Keep Animals Moving.”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

One of the best zoos in the USA. Many exhibits are set up so the natural predators can see their natural prey - this tends to keep the animals moving somewhat instead of watching them sleep. Prepare to walk quite a bit unless renting a chair. Many special events occur throughout the day in many places, but you're on your own to figure out what you want to see & when. Plan accordingly.
