Well only got to see the zoo because no one asked if we wanted to see all of the park. So make sure you ask for the whole park including the zoo, gardens and ect. The zoo was great. There was a ton of kids for a Sunday but it was great! You can bring food in for lunch and have nice areas for it. Also please bring in your own water bottle because there are water bottle fill up stations which is nice. It took us about 2 1/2 hours and cost us $25
