The zoo was pretty big. A lot of animals. My husband and I enjoyed the walk we had in the zoo. I would go back again when it’s warmer.

We were looking forward to visit the zoo with our toddler. We had a 50% reciprocity discount with our local zoo membership. We were a bit disappointed on the zoo portion as some of the exhibits were neglected. The grounds are quite compact and is...More
