Not a big fan of zoos, but this one is well designed and the animals seem pretty happy.

I brought my nephew here once. Though the whole place was a little small, the zoo in it's totality was good. My nephew was really excited of the fact that he could actually pet some of the animals here. He enjoyed feeding them as well. It's also nice that there was a train going around the entire place. This was great so you wouldn't tire yourself that much, especially if you're with the little ones. Tickets were kinda expensive for such a small attraction, though. You can go around it in like an hour. But if you're tired and want to rest, there's a park across the street which would be great for a nice picnic.
