Nice place, inside and outside. Always improving. Certainly not San Diego Zoo, but what is there is well maninted and quality. Just might be one of the best small zoos in the country. My granddaughter LOVES the train!
The zoo wasn't large and didn't take long to navigate it in its entirety but it was well set out, easy to walk and quite pleasant. Renovation work was taking place, I am sure it will only improve as new exhibits are added / opened.

Yes, indeed. There is one in the park outside the Zoo and inside the Zoo is the "Bug Hub Playground" featuring a sliding hill, spider web climbing net, logs to walk and a giant snail. Or, you can bring something to play in the splash pad near the Safari Grill. For the adults, we have free wi-fi and margaritas...who can ask for more?!
