Great exhibits with attempts to give the animals a large space to roam. Underwater exhibits are pretty cool especially for the polar bears, and the otters. Many new upgrades have contributed to his a nice, small zoo.

Small zoo, but the Lions are cool! They have some nice community events for children as well as adults. A quick day trip for animal enthusiasts.

I remember there were a lot of indoor facilities. Though we've never been there in Winter, I can imagine it would be a nice trip in the winter to see the indoor displays and animals.
