Small Hometown Zoo!

Very small in comparison to other zoos. It is really more of an animal rescue than zoo. You can walk around the entire zoo in about an hour or less. Low entrance fee.

You will be lucky to see actual animals, mostly pictures of the animals in the habitats. Save your time and try Bearizona, or out of Africa, both are excellent and well worth it.

mnm72275, Thank you for your feedback, and I'm sorry you did not have the experience you hoped for. As we're a "Zoological Sanctuary" and truly here for the conservation of the animals and education of the community, we do not force our animals to be on display during any set times - for their own happiness, they're allowed to roam...

Grand daughter loved it. Its small but a good experience for the little ones. My granddaughter liked the 4H area where she could pet the goats. The animals seemed very happy and willing to entertain.

If we lived in Prescott, we'd get the yearly pass and be here every week! You can get so close to the animals and watch the tiger and bear get fed. My child had a blast and we were there for hours. For very small kids, you may want to find out which animals to avoid after feeding time (dead... More

Wow, went to this spot several years ago and went there again last week, it was like two different places. They have grown so much and expanded to a point where it was better than ever. The staff truly cares, it shows in everything they do. The park is clean, crisp and spread out very well, it is quite clean.... More

This is a zoo made up primarily of native animals plus a few imports and some big feisty cats! If you go around 9 AM, you will get to see the animals eat and that is lots of fun. This is not only a great place for kids but a great place for adults to meet and stroll around the... More

Good place take the kids to see local wildlife. Especially nice for people who don't live in Arizona. It's a very small zoo but still nice. Prices are reasonable.
