Go in the morning by 2pm everyone was ready to leave getting to warm Take water if possible or spray bottles if you are planning to stay later. We were on vacation and the humidity got the best of us. It was very enjoyable.

The Caldwell Zoo does a great job of exhibiting a wide variety of animals in their natural habitats. Most are allowed to roam around their enclosures and have plenty of room. Some exhibits may be viewed from different locations.
