Visited zoos all over and this one is tops. Animals are well kept and healthy. Would like to see them expand to larger animals.

Hubby and I often visit zoos in the cities we visit and were glad that GM Chris Patel at the Comfort Suites recommended we not miss the one on Alexandria. We're glad we took his advice.

My experience with the zoo was very rewarding to my grandkids and myself. The exhibits and animals was a delight for my grandkids. Easy access to area staff was great and we can't forget the train ride it was awesome.

This is the best zoo in Louisiana w/the exception of Audobon in New Orleans. Lots of animals; birds; and pond to feed fish. You could spend all day here. and the price is great.

The AZP is wonderful! It is so shady and well done for a town this size. It is a bright spot in Alexandria, la! I loved taking my kids and grandkids.

A wonderful little zoo! They have many educational programs, and tons to see. The staff are friendly and helpful. I found the grounds easy to navigate, and the paths are smooth and shady. With an awesome selection of animals, and events, how can you resist? Alexandria has every right to be proud of their zoo!

This Zoo is small as Zoos go. But, the facility is well maintained and clean. The Animals are healthy and active. The food on site was excellent and a good value. Enjoyed the tour guides and train ride. A very fun and affordable family day out. great for small children and older adults as well.

For a small town this is an extraordinarily good zoo. The number and variety of animals in holds in its various habitats make visiting fun. The sidewalks through the zoo are pleasant and there is enough shade to keep hot days from totally melting visitors. There is a little train that visitors may ride and small children love.
