Great park with a lot of history and a petting Zoo that will melt even an old codgers heart. Popular foe family reunions for good reason.

This is a lovely zoo. Not so big that you get worn out, but it has interesting animals and is very pretty. Beautiful merry go round and a nice gift shop. Not a great place to find food, though.

Bring them to Kelly Park, that's the thing to do ,, though they do charge for Parking :-( enjoy the park and extensive Japanese Garden/Pond and then go to Happy Hollow for rides and a visit to the small animal zoo collection :-)

Nice walking trails, you can spend an hour or several hours with family and friends or solo. You do have to pay to park.

If you've time and enjoy some outdoor and creatures. This is the place to drop by for exercise and enjoy the park view as well as the mini zoo creature can offer.

Along with the Japanese friendship gardens and the SJ history museum this is a wonderful place to spend a day, with or without the kids.
