This place is free. My daughter and I love wandering and visiting all of the animals. The primates are a must see.

Conservatory was lush and a pleasure to walk through. The Zoo had some awesome animals but they weren't always active or easy to see. Very easy to walk from exhibit to exhibit though. I'd classify this place more as an area to stroll through or...More

No matter what your day/week/month/life has been like, a visit here will recalibrate your soul. Though it can be busy at times the ambiance of all the artfully arranged plants never fails to bring peace and calm.

One of my favorite places to go. The park is big. The zoo is free. And when it’s cold outside, there’s nothing like a walk through the garden to warm up to summer time humidity.

Just went to view gardens. Crowded mothers day, but enjoyed the day. The gardens and rooms are done so nice.

We always love the mustache monkeys and the 🐺s! A little cool out, but it's always a good exercise and a way to get out and about!

I get that zoos promote a love of animals in young children, and some do some great conservation work. I just found this zoo depressing though. They had a tick box of the key animals that draw people in, gorillas, monkeys, lions, a tiger, a...More

Yes, they have wheelchairs available. The aisles are wide enough to easily accommodate one.
