You get what you pay for. I trip to the zoo, complete with snacks for the kids and the animals, admission, and souvenirs runs me about $20. Where else can you take three kids and have a nice time for that little amount of money? Not too many. No, there aren't as many animals as some other bigger larger zoos. No the grounds aren't as elaborate. But it is still a nice zoo. Our favorite part is the fish. You can chunk your crackers out there, and those huge catfish come swimming. Overall a very nice experience.
