$26 per person plus parking? Seriously? Fam of four for an hours entertainment over a hundred bucks. Nonsense.

We attended, two adults and a toddler and had a lovely morning exploring this beautiful park. There is an impressive number of animals here and their habitats are generous and allow for solitude for the animals if they wish to remain unseen.

The zoo is not well kept and the animals look very sad and barely move. And for $25 per adult it is definitely not worth it. There were more kids playing at the park than looking at the animals b/c there's nothing to see. Do...More

My son didn't really enjoy the exhibit. He is very sensitive and usually loves animals. I am lead to believe the animals are entirely not happy! Lots of pacing and sitting in the sun... exhausted of the cage life? They did not appear like they...More

I would say be prepared for 4-5k if you want to see everything. It's flat and well maintained. You can rent a large pedal cart that fit two adults and two young kids but honestly walking it is best.
