Went with one of my kids, was expecting more of a "real" zoo , but it failed short. We where basically in and out of there in less than 45 minutes. The entrance fee is too high for what they have to offer, the premises are kept very dirty.

If its really hot, you must go early morning, but the water park for the kids they did like, overall it filled hours in our day, and we had a good time.

I visited the zoo yesterday with my two friends and were not very impressed. The last time I went to the zoo was about 3 years ago. Most of the attractions were the same and a lot of them were "closed for maintenance." Some of the animal exhibits were extremely small, while others seemed a little too big for only... More

I have been coming to the zoo on and off for a few years. This is my first review. They have improved the zoo a lot over the years and the displays are impressive. The interactive fountain is a great place for our little one to cool off. The zoo animal shows are always a great learning experience. The addition... More

We stopped here on our departing day of vacation. The park layout is nice and most of the pathways are shaded. It looks like they are remodeling and adding more exhibits. We will pay another visit on our next trip.

I was a veterinary technician, and did my internship at the Milwaukee Zoo. I have to admit I have a unique view when it comes to zoo's I've visited, and I'm a bit picky on how healthy the animals look, how clean are their enclosures, and I rarely get lost in the zoo atmosphere itself. At this zoo I had... More

What an honor for a former Zoo veterinary technician such as yourself to say you "got lost in the Zoo atmosphere" as you did at our Zoo. We appreciate your visit, and also the fact that you took the time to write such a positive review. Thank you, and we hope to see you again soon! More

This is the sweetest little zoo on the planet! It's a half day experience and in the heart of West Palm Beach. The kids will love it. The animals appear to be healthy and live in a beautiful habitat.
