The disigners of the habitats hit it on the head! It feels like you are taking a walk in a magical place where all these exotic animals happen to be.

This place needs to be shut down and the animals placed in other zoos. I can't understand why people rate this place so high. Cages are small and look unkept. The animals don't look like they are well taken care for. I do not recommend this place to take your children.

This zoo is quite small. I was able to walk the entire zoo in an hour and I like to stop and watch the animals for a few minutes at each exhibit. I was very impressed with the exhibits. They were all very natural. It didn't seem like I was walking through a city zoo, bit more like a nature... More

Even though this zoo is relatively small there is a lot to see and do. The kids really love playing in the water fountains at the entrance (be prepared bring a swim suit and towel). There is a merry go round and train ride for them as well. There are a lot of different animals to see the monkeys and... More

Went to the zoo last week but had to leave as far too hot, though there is plenty of shade etc for younger people ( we are just getting a little older) Came back again this week as enjoyed it so much last week apart from the heat which I know is us and nothing to do with the zoo.... More

We were planning to go to Lion Country Safari, but decided it was simply to far, so made a quick detour to the zoo. With our 2 year old in tow, we headed in... Overall, we enjoyed it. It's a small zoo, compared to the zoos we are used to in Chicago, but there was plenty to do and see.... More

Animal areas weren't setup well. I felt like there were repetitive animals throughout the zoo. We enjoyed seeing the bears and hearing the facts from the speaker. The tiger within this zoo seemed very agitated and avoided being in areas where people were.

We went to the Palm Beach Zoo back in March. I was so surprised by the size of the zoo. At first I thought we would get through it in about 45 minutes. Well 3 hours later we were walking out with smiles on our faces! It was myself, husband, 11 month old boy, and grandmother. The zoo was a... More

We love coming to the Palm Beach Zoo. A much smaller zoo than Miami, but the layout is better for small kids and they do have many of the bigger animals - alligators, panthers/jaguars, tigers, bears, kangaroos. No rhinos, elephants, or lions but the ease of getting around and staying in the shade is great. The price is right too... More
