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.

It has always been a great zoo, with the addition of The Land of the Jaguar, Alexandria Zoological Park has made itself stand above other nearby zoos. Zoo is well shaded, so visiting on a Saturday morning will be nice and comfortable, even in the middle of August. My children love this place. We visit regularly!

While visiting the zoo today the kids got hungry, not surprising since its rt at noon. So we stopped at the palms cafe to get a snack. While waiting in line, and waiting for them to decide what they wanted, a couples order of burgers was ready, upon seeing that the kids decide they want cheeseburgers, good, at least they... More

Many times towns the size of Alexandria have a zoo that is just okay. But this area should be proud of Alexandria Zoological Park. From the new Land of the Jaguar exhibit to the countless animals that are native to Louisiana, this is a great place to spend an early morning (especially when the temperature and humidity climb as the...

Love that it's so small and doesn't take hours to walk around to see it all. Not a large selection of large animals but lots of interesting creatures to enjoy. I didn't get to finish the Louisiana habitat area, but we love our local habitats at our local zoo. It's nice to be able to enjoy the local wildlife instead... More

We have taken our children across America to different zoo's from Washinton DC Zoo to San Diego Zoo and I honestly feel that our little Alexandria Zoo ranks up with the best of them. While we do not have the Pandas or Polar Bears or Elephants, we have have a very large variety of animals that are displayed in very... More

This zoo in Alexandria is actually one of the coolest (as far as temperature) zoo's I ve been to. The entire zoo is covered by trees, so while the Louisiana sun is beating down, you are covered by shade almost everywhere you go inside this unique zoo. We especially loved the Koi pond and feeding them.

The zoo has been updated since my last visit. I enjoyed it! There were even new exhibits to view. The paths have somewhat changed direction. The zoo is very well kept for the most part.
