We take our friends there along with their children. It's not too large. You can cover it in less than an hour if you wanted. Surprisingly large assortment of large and small animals. Lions, sloth bears, kangaroos, llamas and other exotic animals not typically in the big zoos. Also, there is a water park for the kids and a huge... More

One of the few city owned zoos in the state. The care, compassion and professionalism of the entire staff is plainly evident when you tour this zoo. The animals and their well being is first and foremost. That said, they manage to tie in education and entertainment to keep kids of all ages interested and engaged for the entire day.... More

This is a small zoo with not as many exhibits as some of the bigger parks, but it was clean with lots of open paths for kids to run. On top of that it is so much more affordable than some of the other local zoos. Nice place to spend an afternoon!

Fun zoo for kids. Relatively small, can see all the exhibits in 1-2 hours, have a snack and play on the playground just outside the zoo all in a morning or afternoon. Good variety of interesting animals in well maintained exhibits. The zoo itself is also very well maintained and is really a great value. Not as large as Roger... More

Been going to Capron Zoo since 1973. After 40 years it still is fun.. The new splash pad is great for the young kids. Its an Excellent place to take the family if you have limited time and money. Short. Sweet very nostalgic. It will keep you coming back. Prices arent that bad.either.

Took my grandchildren here (ages 4 & 13). We thoroughly enjoyed it! There is a free playground area just outside the entrance. Admission to the zoo is very affordable ($7 adults, $5.50 for 3-12 & senior discount). Inside the park is a small water play area along with an area where kids can feed goats & llamas. Our group particularly... More

This zoo is perfect if you want to experience a small zoo. Very easy to get around. With just the right amount of exhibits that do not overwhelm you. They even have volunteers in the summer that show you different artifacts and will talk about them.Be sure to check out the cajun bayou exhibit with cajun music and and live... More

This is a small zoo, but has great exhibits. They have a white lion! This is really worth the trip if you are in the area and admission is only $7; $5.50 (3 - 12) $4.75 (ages 60+) $2.75 (military with ID). There is a playground for the little kids, and a splash pool to cool off on hot summer... More

While this is not a really large zoo, it is worth the visit. The park itself is very pretty and has a 9/11 memorial with a piece of steel from ground zero.
