The zoo is open 7 days a week from 10:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Memorial Day Weekend. It will then adopt its summer hours and stay open until 7 p.m.

Zoo employees said after the long winter they were excited to open the gates on time.

"We've been dealing with the odd weather trying to get everything ready so that has definitely hindered us getting a few things ready earlier in the season than what we would have liked,but we still were able to get everything finished up before we opened up this morning," said Noah Shields. 

Visitors can look forward to baby goats that are expected to be born in May.
