This was a delightful zoo. We were in the area and I was looking for something to do in the morning; I enjoy zoos and as a zoo member at home I always look for reciprocal zoos when we travel. I am very happy that we visited, this is a very nice, medium sized zoo with a nice variety of animals. I feel that the highlight was the elephants, since I live in Pittsburgh, I am always interested in seeing other zoo elephant exhibits and families. I also enjoyed the penguin exhibit, the water is large enough for them to leap! Some of the indoor exhibits were very nice. Overall I enjoyed the zoo very much and recommend it to anyone else who enjoys zoos who might be in the area.
Admission is affordable, however we did have to wait in line after being asked to go to that line for the clerk to return to the register, some enclosures were sad looking but one must keep in mind this is an older zoo, the indoor exhibits today (lemurs, cats) were humid & had a slight scent of urine, a water station & another snack/ice cream cart were not open (out by the tigers) the Jungle Cafe was very busy, polite staff, but out of utensils, nice benches throughout the park, sand pit for the kids to play in, we also went during the dinosaur invasion & my kids loved it! (Ages 4,4 & almost 6) Overall we were pleased.
This is such a nice zoo! So many exhibits for such a great price! The only disappointing thing is that we went on a really hot day in August and almost all of the snack and ice cream shops were closed. It was near the end of the summer, so it may have just been a staffing issue. Overall a great place with a nice variety of healthy animals to enjoy. We also really liked the gem mining and dinosaur exhibit that was running at the time.
I took my son here for the first time during the summer and we loved it. He loves the dinosaurs throughout the park. We enjoyed lunch in the cafeteria. We will be back next summer.
Great zoo. You are able to get very close to the animals which was a unique experience we have not had at other zoos. Many animals are also inside so you can visit in the harsh cold winters of CNY. The most active animals we have seen at any zoo. Almost every animal was either walking around, interacting with guest or playing. Would definitely recommend.
