  • This zoo was fun. The animals seemed happy, active and well cared for. The whole zoo was nicely maintained and looked excellent. The snow leopard was the only animal we couldn't really see well, because they built the zoo where you have multiple ways of seeing most animals. Very reasonable priced, and the pavilion food looked and smelled so good. It was a huge menu.
  • We had a great time. Kids had a wonderful time though out the park. Had a great time in the kids play area. They almost forgot that they were in the zoo.it seemed that all the animals had a large area to walk in. Park was well kept up with and a staff were wonderful. We are not from here, but will definitely come back
