We're season pass holders to the zoo, and we go there during school breaks and other related opportunities. It's great to go there even if it's just for a few hours!

What an awesome zoo! The animal collection is super diverse and so clearly well-loved and taken care of. There is a strong educational message, and conservation and community involvement is well-represented, too. You definitely need to visit!

great for families with young ones, ample parking. the price of admission is reasonable, but go ahead and get the yearly family pass, your kids will like it.

The zoo is small, but much larger than I expected. The exhibits are fun and interactive (I especially liked the van in the lion exhibit). The animals were very active when we went. It was a cool day, so they were all out basking in...More

Response from Rebecca T | Reviewed this property |
Depends on the time of year. This time, it is $12 for an adult, and was $9 for my daughter who is 5. They have a website where they list the pricing and the dates. It's open year round.
How long does it take to go through entire zoo?

Hi, it depends on interest (and weather), eg longer stay at seal / polar bear underground observatory on a hot day or Safari bus observation deck on a cool day. Half day is a good length, even if you don't see everything... More
