My husband and I visited the zoo, and I loved it. Not only were there animals I've never seen before (all kinds of monkeys, Kangaroos, and a giant ANTEATER,) but there were creative flower creations everywhere. For one that loves flowers, I was in heaven....More

I'm only rating 4 stars because when I went there was construction and alot of exhibits were closed. Also I wish the monkeys had a bigger enclosure.

While this is not the most amazing zoo we have ever experienced, it is a cute little excursion, especially if you have kids. Some nice surrounding gardens and ponds as well as some light festivals and activities around the holidays.

A great place to visit with the kids. A nice walkable zoo, but with some hills. There are rides and fishing that you can do with the kids. There is also a fun interactive museum. A great whole day activity for the family!

Its not expensive so not bad for the value. But its not well kept and the animal enclosures are smaller than they should be. The elephant had a baby recently and we were lucky enough to be there during the feeding time.
