The zoo has been under construction for a while due to the new elephant exhibit (finally open, yay!), so I can only give it 3 stars at the moment because of some of the crowding. But overall this is a really nice zoo. The new elephant habitat is huge. The Red Ape Forest (orangutans) is a fantastic space with so many viewing opportunities. The zoo keepers are really knowledgeable and accessible, and they'll come out and do feedings during regular hours. Case in point: the hippo. We saw the hippo's jaws open wide and the zoo keeper dump about a dozen apples down his gullet (one at a time, of course), plus a melon. Pretty cool! And I have to give a shout out to the food. Churros and pizza used to be pretty much all you could get. But recently I had a very good -- and healthy -- grilled chicken sandwich with good fries. For not that expensive. Makes a big difference! Yes, some of the exhibits are a bit dated. But overall this is a well kept, nice zoo with a lot of great animals who seem to be happy enough to be relatively active when folks are visiting.

I like the fact that the elephant enclosure is really big but some of the other animal enclosures seem rather small. The day we came, the poor leopard was pacing back and forth and did not seem comfortable. As an artist that draws animals, I like coming here to sketch rather than looking at pictures on the web. It’s still a nice zoo with a lot of beautiful flora.
Love coming to this Zoo with my family. The Lair is always a favorite and the small ice cream stand just before the marketplace is our last stop each visit for the best ice cream cones in the zoo. They even have a Starbucks, but beware it is not a full Starbucks and it's not open first thing in the morning as you might expect.
