His favorites were the giraffes and the anteater. It was easy to walk around and there were lots of places to rest. There was a great play area where the grandparents could relax. LOL!

The zoo and the museum were both amazing! Our son and grandson loved both! The park was clean and the museum has a lot of great displays. The arachnid exhibit was very nice.
