Pretty good zoo. There are a good amount of animals here. They have everything from red pandas to porcupines. They also have a reptile house, a playground, and a little zoo train that takes you around on a ride through the zoo. The zoo isn’t amazing, but they are doing lots to make it better. There is also a little platform within the zoo that has a great view of the surrounding area. The zoo is great for small kids. Overall the zoo is pretty fun and people should go, especially if you have small kids.

It was alright.. wasnt much going on. Kinda small. Came at lunch hours which was my mistake.. all animals were sleeping. The view of the city along the side was a nice touch!

Kind of a one trick pony but my son loves it, every time we go. The train is fun, the snowleopards fighting was an awesome sight to see and there are plenty of picture opportunities. Jaxon, my son, also loves the playground and the gift shop. So make sure to not go in there unless you want to see how they make up the price of the reasonable tickets...

Really not worth the time or money. Very small. The animals seem well cared for and the grounds are clean.

A small zoo. Costs $9 per adult and less for children, seniors and the military. Contains about 35 exhibits, and all of the animals appear to be well cared for. I recommend spending a bit of time in the aviary myself. Overall, a good way to spend an hour or two.
