OK~ When you hear the word zoo most of us think of little kids and cute animals! Well, this Mom experienced the Minnesota Zoo from a totally different point of view. A Grandma, Mom, 20 year old and a 16 year old....AND a great time was had by all! Sure there were play areas built specifically for little kids, such as Replay Park.....
But, this Splash Pad......I know little kids love this area, but my big kid loved it as well.
The Minnesota Zoo has a wide array of animal species......From camels, grizzly bears, to dolphins, this zoo has it all! The one thing I found very helpful was the signs near each exhibit. The signage described the animal, in what part of the world it resides in, and other interesting information!
Due to the fact that Grandma was in need of a wheelchair, we were impressed with the wheelchair rental service that the Minnesota Zoo provided. The employees were very helpful, courteous, and understanding when it came to rounding one up.
If you are visiting with a stroller or wheelchair in tow, I highly recommend that you seek out the family restrooms. The regular restrooms are not designed very well for strollers and wheelchairs. You can get in/out of them, but it's difficult to maneuver around.
Here's proof that kids of all ages are just as curious as little, adventurous kiddos~
We had an enjoyable day at the Minnesota Zoo. And I can honestly say that a zoo is still one of the best places to take the family for a visit. And, this family is living proof that kids of all ages really do enjoy the zoo! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
