This is a great zoo and aquarium. Lots of things to see and do. Lots of walking so wear good shoes!

We love the beluga whales and the polar bears the best.

They have a new play area for the children. It's the perfect spot to sit and rest for a bit while the children continue to play. In the summer, they also have a water area.

There are plenty of good spots to unpack a picnic lunch, staff has always been very friendly with us.

They also have a big gift shop, but honestly I have not really gone in, so I couldn't really say much.

We love going to the zoo!
