This is a wonderful FREE zoo!!! They have a wide variety of hands on exibits. They have lions, including 5 lion cubs which were born at the zoo--they are one years old now! They just opened up a new hand carved wooden carousel! It costs $1 to ride, and is absolutely gorgeous! They have a similulated walk through rainforest, my girls thought this was really cool! As a mother with two young children who always want a souvenier I find the gift shop holds a ton of very reasonable things! Parking can be a bit fun since the lot fills up quickly, you have to really be careful about parking signs. But You cannot beat this zoo for a free zoo! Lot's of creativity goes on here!
