The zoo is a nice size for younger children, as we find that within a few hours, everyone sees the animals they like the most. You can easily stretch out the time if you have older kids who like to learn more at the different exhibits.Admission during the summer months is $9.75 for adults and $6.75 for children 3 and older. If you live in the area, it's definitely worth checking out the pass because you really only need about 2 visits to make up the cost and you get invited to special events then too.
Recently updated is the cat house and the children's farm area now includes 2 playgrounds and foodstands targeted towards children. The giraffe exhibit is being updated so that you can come face-to-face with them and feed them. The renovations they've been doing throughout the zoo are great. Other things worth checking out is the train ride($1.50 for adults), the sea lion show ($2 for a 30 minute show), and the dinosaur exhibit which has large animated dinosaurs and activity areas for the kids. The dinosaurs are here this year right now but they don't have them every year.If visiting in the winter, they have evening times with the Christmas lights. The decorations are mostly light strings in shapes of animals - not impressive but still fun. The animal houses are open, which is nice, because you need to warm up during the walk around the zoo. If you do visit during this time, make sure to stop by the wolves, as we've seen some up very close to the fences at night - absolutely beautiful creatures!
