This is a good size for a zoo. Not so big where you get lost or tired. Lots of room to walk. I'm not sure if it's usual but all the animals were out the day we went. Free parking lot. Good price for admission.

My 2 young children love going to the zoo several times at year. It is small enough to do in several hours but big enough to have large variety of animals. Always a fun experience.
