Visited here on the advice of two locals. The bears are stunning creatures and seem to be very well cared for in a reasonably large area. It is very popular and you do get some great views but you are looking at wild animals that...More

We found the fact that there were real live bears living naturally in a large city fascinating. The very large enclosure was an excellent home for the family of bears,who seemed to be healthy and content. The public could get very close to the bears....More
