This is really a 3.5 star review but will round up. I normally like visiting zoos to see the animals, but I think the May floods in Baltimore are still affecting the grounds. Some of the walking trails were off limits due to flooding damage...More

It was a really good experience. I love the giraffe and the elephants. The only downside for my was the food and some animals seems to have to little space. But other than that it was amazing.

this is a day trip. There is a petting zoo where the kids can play with goats, a climibing tower with a big slide and teh typical animals in cages. The polar bear exhibit is very nice

As an animal lover was very disappointed with the poor living conditions of the chimpanzees, they're closed in with no sun light the smell was awful and they don't look healthy. They have an bald eagle in a tiny cage for an eagle without space...More

Admission was not too bad. Not all of the animals were at the zoo because of the weather, little nippy and misty. Concession stand were not open neither.

Free parking. No military discount. DO NOT GO ON A COLD DAY. I want on a coldish day, paid $19 and only got to see 5 animals. Very rude staff. Overpriced food and shop.
