Overall, a quite lovely zoo. We went specifically to see the otters, housed in a kid-friendly enclosure with a Lexan slide which goes through the otter tank. It was fun to sit in the provided rocking chairs and watch small children riding down the slide,...More

I would agree with all, 2 hours is a good amount of time. Can you walk through the whole thing in an hour, yes. But to stop and watch, play on the slides and stuff, maybe have a drink on the deck... Two hours plus. If you... More
