I always go every year when the zoo holds their summer events like Zoo Brew. It's a nice way to enjoy the zoo without all the children.

I have visited this zoo since I was a young kid and they have done a lot to improve and upgrade while maintaining the nostalgia. This is a good time for kids-especially little ones. No real thrills or extras- just lots of viewing spots of...More

Anyone who knows about elephants know how much room they require. Why the zoo brought more elephants into the enclosure is beyond me. If it is to expose people to this magnificent animal, the two we had were enough, actually one more than enough. Animal...More

We take out-of-town visitors here frequently. Adults and kids alike enjoy it. The exhibits are interesting, and the zoo is easy to get around and see--it's a nice size for a half day adventure.

Went with two 12 year olds and a 10 year old. We liked that the whole place is one loop, and it was easy to see all the exhibits. I think we stayed about 90 minutes to 2 hours. Sea Lions were active and we...More

Response from Rebecca T | Reviewed this property |
Depends on the time of year. This time, it is $12 for an adult, and was $9 for my daughter who is 5. They have a website where they list the pricing and the dates. It's open year round.
How long does it take to go through entire zoo?

Hi, it depends on interest (and weather), eg longer stay at seal / polar bear underground observatory on a hot day or Safari bus observation deck on a cool day. Half day is a good length, even if you don't see everything... More
