This is a lot of fun for the children and adults highly recommend visiting the zoo and taking the train to the aquarium. It's great size to walk through and see all the animals and usually there's a baby animal that's a real crowd-pleaser.

Was pleasanlty surprised to see the size of the zoo. Very diverse "residents" along with lot's of babies. Enclosures were very habitat friendly and clean. There is also a train ride around the park, it's not just for "kids"

Although not large, the zoo did have a nice selection of animals. We were disappointed not to be able to go by the elephants as their area was under construction.
