Kids love the train and the goat petting area! All Done February 6, This place is Amazing! Visited the zoo with my grandchildren. Animals were not very active. Kids especially enjoyed feeding the giraffes. Was definitely the highlight. All the animal enclosures are in need of some serious cleaning up. All the viewing glass in all the enclosures is filthy!
The water in any enclosure is basically stagnant, you can not see any swimming animals clearly. The big Koi Pond is so green Great zoo and great experiences. I love going around the winter because it's so much cooler and the animals come out. If it rains, you won't be able to feed the giraffes because of the mud. Stingray bay is a great place and you really I spent about four hours touring the zoo.
So many interesting exhibits to see. There was always someone from the zoo nearby to answer questions or to assist. I enjoy our local Zoo very much but the Night at the Zoo for 21 and over Dancing through the Decades was a disappointment they were sold out which means there were a lot of people.
