Always fun! Lots to enjoy with the family and a great walk. If people could learn to follow the golden rule, it'd be perfect. The exhibits are interesting and entertaining, if a little bland compared to larger venues. The gardens are lovely and fun to walk. Go all the way to the turtle pond for a real treat during warm weather, it's brim-full of turtles sunning themselves! Avoid the area under the sundial bridge, between the heavy cigarette smokers and the transients, you don't want to take your kids down there. Have fun!

I love this place! It's always very informational and has new exhibits all the time. Better hurry, though! When a new exhibit opens, the last one closes! I love the effort they put in to taking care of the animals, along with the animals themselves! That's just the museum, though! When you go, don't forget to walk across the Sundial Bridge and check out the gardens and ponds!

Great park for short walk and seeing some wonderful flowers and nature. Right in the midst of town easy to get to, nice wide well kept trails. Good place to hang out or have a picnic.

It's a large exploration park for kids and adults alike. They change the gallery exhibit occasionally which is nice for locals. They also have a butterfly exhibit currently. The animals I wish had much larger holding areas, it's depressing. There's an outdoor water play area next to an original and fun playground suitable for many ages.

This place was so great. There is so much to do, feed parrots,watch an amazing wildlife show,see a natural history museum. And we only had time to scratch the surface. I would definitely go back!
