Wonderful day

Well planned out and a great walk. Can't beat the price (it's free) and so many animals to see. The day we were there, the polar bear put on quite a show!!

Visited twice with family, such an amazing free attraction. My youngest loves the train so the day passes were good value as they also loved feeding the stingrays. Sea-lions were the other big hit.

This is a great zoo. Admission is free ($15 to park). Exhibits allow you to get close to the animals. We enjoyed it a lot.

This is my second time visiting this zoo, this time with my 4 yo granddaughter. We had a blast even though it was freezing! We were there 5 hours and still didn't see it all.
