Located in Palm Beach, this family friendky zoo is a hidden treasure. So many wonderful animals and creatures too see. Not just for kids. Can't wait to go back. They also have a snack bar and gift shop.

This zoo is so well kept. It is nice to see the animals in habitats versus cages. We have been going since my daughter was a baby, she is now 17. Our favorite thing to do it take her stuffed otter (yes, still at 17) to the river otter display and watch how the real otters interact with her stuffed... More

A nice place to go to spend a couple of hours. More affordable if you have a coupon, but if you do not the money goes towards the care of the animals. Up close attractions and hourly events make it a fun day for couples or families. I prefer to go during the week to avoid crowds and noisy people,... More

This zoo is a great place to take small children. The footprint is small and very easy to navigate. The animals are on the smaller size with the black bears being the largest but they have a very interesting assortment of animals. The fountain is a plus as they encourage everyone to get wet. They even have changing rooms so... More

It's been a while since I've been here, but I remember it being nice and quite big for how it looks from the outside. I remember that some of the displays were outdated and felt that some of the animals needed a bigger enclosure. There have been renovations since I went so I hope that this has changed. I am... More

We promised my 3 1/2 year old granddaughter a trip to the zoo. She was excited at the prospect, but disappointed when we discovered that there are really no large animals there. My granddaughter wanted to know where the elephants, lions. zebras and giraffes were. She nearly cried when we told here there were none at this zoo, The staff... More

If you're like me in that you always feel a little sad about seeing animals in captivity, the Palm Beach Zoo won't give you a jarring feeling that the animals might be miserable. While nothing compares to life in the wild, the habitats appear to be comfortable and spacious enough for the animals to move about freely. There is a... More

Nice place to visit, small and pleasant and well kept. It's not like the giant zoos that take all day and are so vast it takes forever to see everything.

Wonderfull small old time zoo. Lots of fun with a variety of easy to see close up animals. Seems like a very local place intended for a good time.
