Great outing for the entire family. Approx. 15 minutes from our condo. Google for details.

One of the best things to do in Columbia. Our zoo has just about everything you'd want in a Zoo that is easily traversable in a couple of hours. And the Botanical Gardens on the other side of the River are magnificent. A must see if you are in town for a week.

This is such an impressive zoo and that is saying a lot from a San Diegan who visited the World Famous San Diego Zoo since I was a kid! The animals here look happy and the place is very well maintained! Make sure to visit the Garden area. It is part of your admission and has a splash pad area for the kids and acres of beautiful plants! Free to park and it can get busy during Spring Break and such when school is out.

This is a wonderful zoo. Having been to some of the major zoos in the country, I didn't expect much. I was very impressed. They have fantastic exhibits and all the animals you hope to see. This is a great zoo.
