  • Great for a FREE zoo! Enough diversity that it is worth visiting again and again. Most exhibits are reasonably close. To see large animals takes a bit of walking or paying to drive through. If you do not wish to walk very much, the drive through option is nice for $10 per car or zoo membership. Great family membership price. It can also get you into other zoos for half off.
  • Amazing zoo, was blown away by the layout, animals and overall atmosphere. We enjoyed it so much, would recommend it to anyone. We saw families, solo and couple visitors, prams have easy access to view points for each animal. All staff went were friendly and helpful. This was such a great zoo, it should be top on your list of things to do at Garden City.
