The Botanical part of the zoo is fantastic, especially in Spring. Animal habitats allow for upclose viewing and well maintained. Food options are plentifully and not too highly priced.

“Love taking the family”

we love wandering around this wonderful zoo all year long. If you join the zoo, you have yearlong enjoyment for very little money.

“Great family outing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

A bit expensive for a family but worth the money. You can tell that a large part of the revenue is turned back into keeping the facilities in good condition. Get the membership if you plan on more than one trip-a good value that quickly pays for itself.

“Children's Hospital Outing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

I visited the gardens and zoo with family & friends. The gardens were fantastic. The complaint about the zoo a lot of the animals were not out. The property was very clean. There were performers throughout the park witch was a nice touch. The refreshments were a little price for patrons with younger children.
