The zoo was awesome and better than I expected. Being for a city with a world-class zoo, I wasn't sure what to expect. They had many animals - I especially loved the cats and elephants.

The zoo was packed that morning to the point no parking was available. So we came back in the afternoon and had a great time walking around seeing the animals. The Two headed snake was a bonus. Neat little zoo.

Not as big as zoos in larger cities, but it was a lot of fun. The highlights were probably the playful gibbons near the entrance and the giraffe feeding platform. We had a great visit!

We didn't eat in the park either, but I would think you could go to your car and eat and then return but check with the zoo to be sure
