The zoo is very good value for your money. They have alot of different animals and although the zoo looks old and there are a few empty exhibitions, it is great. A little sad that alot of animals appeared to be on their own.

Nice little zoo, poorly maintained but with potential. If travelling to Riga with children it is a nice trip, Easy to get to from the center with tram 11.. There is A beutaful view from the zoo over the Lake

It's a fairly decent zoo, with lots to see. There was even a polar bear when we visited. A good day out and reasonably priced. Be sure to visit Mezaparks on the same day. It's right next to the zoo

Really nice, peaceful and fun experience. Many animals, feeding shows. Perfect for families with kids as there are a lot of attractions for kids and a farm animals zoo.

I really enjoyed Riga Zoo, especially 4 giraffes. It is around 15-20 min to drive from city center. Big and green territory. There is playground for kids, but we could not try that, because the weather was rainy.

We did travel Zoo with tram. It was very convient way to go. There were also car parking but not so big for many cars. If you want eat inside food is homemade and cheap. Toilets were out of shape. Alltought this is good place to visit with children.

Very nice zoo that despite being not so big has a reasonable amount of different animal species. It might take 2/4 hours to see everything.

To understand the beauty of this zoologic garden, you have to understand, that the bond between latvians and nature is much deeper. Its not about perfection in human mind, but about a healthy environment for plant and animal. Good place to support the right thing.
