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.

Great place to go with kids or even just the adults. They have a variety of animals & a shuttle that you can take around. They have multiple places to eat located in the different areas. I just wish there was more signage around. I've been so many times & yet I still get turned around easily. They recently put a Dino area in. It's very cute & fun. They also have events throughout the year. Some are members only, but it's neat to go.
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.
