We liked the lions, tigers, elephants, and sea lions. The otters were not out for some reason. The park is clean and not too big so you do not get worn out by walking through it. We enjoyed our time there.

There were a few nice exhibits but I was disappointed in the majority of social animals living in enclosures completely alone. So sad.

Sorry to say that the zoo is getting old. Nearly as old as some of its residents. Many attractions were either not filled like the polar bear area or so hidden that the animals were hidden from view.More

No fee for parking. If you plan on going on the weekends, I recommend getting there at opening time or before as the parking lots fill up fast.

I remember there were a lot of indoor facilities. Though we've never been there in Winter, I can imagine it would be a nice trip in the winter to see the indoor displays and animals.
