I went to the zoo in Abilene, Texas in October with a friend. I really enjoyed my visit there, to say the least! The weather was perfect, thankfully. The zoo there is very clean and all of the animal cages were as well. I hope to go back soon and visit once again!

Surprised by the collection of animals. The cougars thought my service dog might be dinner on the hoof! The otters wanted to play with her. She does not bark at them but seemed to enjoy seeing them too.

We visited the Abilene Zoo for the 2nd time today for the Boo at the Zoo! What a sweet little Halloween treat! Trick or Treating at a zoo was a fun thing for my children. Always love the Abilene Zoo!

I was really impressed with this zoo. The layout was great because the attractions were pretty spread out unlike most zoos. There was a small (okay, very small) train that ran through the zoo. There was also a spot to feed giraffes, which the kids absolutely loved.

I have to say this is a well put together zoo for the size of Abilene. There is plenty to see and the park is kept very clean. I was impressed.

It had been a few years since we visited the Abilene Zoo. They have really made a lot of improvements and are still working on others. I rode the little train with my grandkids, but it was really information and it gave us a good idea of where everything was located. We enjoyed it very much!

When we first moved here because of the military, I thought this zoo would be a joke. Most zoos that are in small towns are usually small, dirty, and laughable. I was pleasantly surprised with this zoo! First of all, the size of this place is pretty awesome. It is spread out very well, and it isn't just empty space.... More
