Wonderful for kids, not overwhelming, just the right amount of animals to keep young children interested. Playground after a walk that isn't too challenging and that most kids can do.

Great place to take the kids, especially under 10. Get your eyes off the screen and enjoy nature at its best. Love it in the spring when all the baby animals are at their cutest!
