This is a great zoo. The enclosures are super nice and have excellent views of the animals. We love the hippo exhibit and the different animal feedings especially the flamingos

Such a beautiful zoo! Highly recommended. Zoo needs to make sure concession stands are open during 100 degree weather though.
