It has been years since I was here and really enjoyed the day, although it seems to have fallen into disrepair since my last visit. I do hope they can get the funding to improve the landscaping and exhibits.

Love the zoo, been a member for over 15 years. Get a family membership, pays for itself in almost the 1st visit. The zoo and rainforest are awesome. Always something going on.
