My family and I really enjoyed the zoo. There are so many things to see and for kids to do, you could spend an entire day doing it all. Maybe even two. The atmosphere was my favourite part. You're surrounded by plants, trees, bamboo, shrubs,...More

This is a large and well maintained zoo. We especially enjoyed the primates, lion and reptile and fish exhibits. My personal favorite were the black bears! Staff is friendly and helpful. Plan on visiting again.

This is a great Zoo. It is Shaded most of the way so we never really bothered with sunscreen and the breeze kept us pretty cool. We love this zoo and always find it a great getaway during the summer without sizzling.
