Overview
More
This extraordinary zoo, one of the oldest in the U.S., underwent a multi-million dollar renovation in the 1980s and is still expanding. Its landscaping replicates the natural habitats of the numerous animals, some of which are endangered species. Four panda bears from China delight the crowds, and groups of gorillas separated by moats do their own share of entertaining.

Yes, the animals are very active in the mornings. You'll see everything from animals stretching to feeding. You'll even hear our trio of lion brothers roaring in the morning! Parking is also great.
