Have not been to the zoo in years. The elephant habitat is so much more spacious for them. Construction is going on but still a nice visit!

This is ceetainly not a large zoo but the animals were active and looked well cared for. A great place for the younger children with play areas and activity centers. Several informative discussions about some of the animals with the zoo guides.

I remember there were a lot of indoor facilities. Though we've never been there in Winter, I can imagine it would be a nice trip in the winter to see the indoor displays and animals.
