child and adult friendly, beautiful places to sit and picnic, paths to wander, take the "train" and work your way back to entrance. signs are only ok, . try to go to a summer night tour! really fun.

Several excellent enclosures especially the African one. Lots of interesting exhibits e.g. The one on Wolves. Just not enough time to see and do everything in a single visit. The downside today was that there were more people than animals.
