We enjoy this zoo every year we come to Texas with our grand child. The place is clean, the animals are well kept and the exhibits are exceptional.

It is great to spend time looking around the animals they have some time different. They make some changes sometimes. The environment is great with all the trees and plants. The restaurants if you want to eat or drink. Have fun every year.
