This zoo has been much fun over the years and we have visited since our kids were quite young. During this visit, we noticed many updates. It would also appear that more changes are coming soon. I love the big cats, gorillas and penguins.

Yes, they do. Almost all of the animals have both an indoor and outdoor viewing area. Early October would be a good time to visit and walk the whole zoo without getting hot. We have really amazing exhibits at our zoo. I grew... More
