It's a nice zoo to take the kids to. There are things there to keep them occupied and cooled off. Relatively clean for a zoo.

I love photography, and I love wildlife. Here in the city sometimes its hard to find areas where the two can co-exist. I decided to venture to the Palm Beach Zoo to practice some of my wildlife photography and see what the Zoo is all about. While I will say the Florida heat took its toll, the park was a... More

This is a very nice zoo. Many of the walkways are naturally shaded by the greenery making it pleasant. The demonstrations were informative and up close. This is not the largest zoo but it is by far the more pleasant of the bunch. At the entrance is a circle (world) you can pick a path to the region of animals... More

We've been frequenting this Zoo for 20 years!! My children have enjoyed it ... at every stage. We became members when first moving to Palm Beach County. Some days, we visit for just an hour ... other times for far longer. We've also used our membership benefits at other zoos throughout the country,

I love this zoo. It is the perfect size and very family friendly. It has a lot of shade so even on a hot day it's not too bad. There is a splash play area for kids to cool off in during the hot months and lots if seating for parents. The price is decent and the animals appear to... More

Attended this past Saturday evening for their Roar & Pour event. The attraction was that kids were free for the Labor Day weekend and that other admission was only $10. There was a live pop/reggae band and food available for purchase (a hamburger cost $7). Was not impressed with the animals that they exhibited, rather shabby enclosures. Also, it looked... More

This zoo was wonderful, not over the top too big, but great size and easily walkable with the kids. The grounds reminded me of Animal Kingdom in Disney. There are fountains in the center of the zoo, which the kids loved! And I got my zoo membership discount from another state, so it was 1/2 off admission. Good amount of... More

I have taken my family to this zoo many times and always come away feeling quite satisfied. It's a small zoo, close to home with a good selection of animals to see. This time was different, the impression was that the zoo was falling on hard times, many exhibits were empty or being re-built, but even the construction looked halfhearted.... More
