Not big compared to some urban zoos, the Valley Zoo is manageable and fun for young kids. Among the 350 animals are spider monkeys, red pandas and emus. The Children’s Zoo (open May through August) has petting animals. See lemurs at their new habitat, Makira Outpost, and discover Siberian tigers and snow leopards along Carnivore Alley. Addax, peacocks and zebras roam the African Veldt. Young kids will like the miniature train that drops guests at various exhibits, and they’ll get a kick out of the pony rides and the carousel.
