God the family membership which works well with little ones. The kids facilities are good although there is not much point visiting in colder months as the animals are kept indoors.

Wide variety of animals and things to do. The zoo does a good job keeping things clean, new and interesting. Zoo is big enough to fill a day but not so big to be exhausting.
