It is a small zoo but worth a visit. The seals are absolutely amazing! They are so animated and love to play. I swear some of them were posing for pictures. The penguins are pretty cool as well. You can watch them swim underwater through the glass.

Very small zoo and when we went, many exhibits were being renovated. My son's favorite part was the sea lion feeding. You can watch from the park walkway, so schedule your time right and you can see the best part for free. The children's zoo was pretty cool for the kids, and you get admission to both zoos with your ticket.
