This is a great place to spend an afternoon wandering around. When I've visited, it's been hit-or-miss with some of the animals. I've never, for instance, gotten a good look at any of the big jungle cats.
What's great about this zoo is that it's open year round and it's always free. Come anytime--even if it's cold. You can duck into the conservatory and warm up among the jungle plants.

I'm not a fan of zoos. That said, if you are going to visit one, this is a relatively nice one. Conveniently located in a gorgeous park. I hate to see the animals living in captivity but this zoo is more humane than most and has a wide variety of animals.

If you like zoos, and/or if you like free attractions, come here. The animals were very active. We got to hear the lion roar! Though it's not enormous, it is well maintained.

This is the zoo of my childhood. We'd beg our parents to take us there, then spend hours looking at the gorillas, elephants, and monkeys. My favorite was the lion house. Later as a teen I'd ride my bike there, and then, as an adult I'd go in winter just to see the ducks sliding around on the iced over ponds. A world-class zoo that also serves as a green space in the midst of the big city. Big plus, it's free and open every day.
