Nice enclosures. Friendly staff. They do a lot for conservation and the environment. They have great educational information on the animals.

Zoo Boise is well run, clean, friendly and provides a great place for discovery, learning and relaxing. For visiting friends and family, it can't be beat. If you're a business looking for a cool venue for your next client appreciation event, chat up the folks at Zoo Boise. They can help you arrange just the ticket!

Lots of fun to be had here. Well laid out and easy to get around, great if you have someone who has difficulty with mobility. Make sure you feed the Giraffes!

I decdided to go to the Boise Zoo and to take some photos. Since it was clody and overcast on a working day there where only a handful amount of visitors so practically had the whole place to myself. A few of the exhibits were about and I noticed they were well fed and the conditions were very good. Small... More

Best Zoo I've been to in a long time. the zoo could use some upgrading. The animals are taking care. Clean cages and path ways. I had a great time with my grand kids there.

Couldn't get my two boys ages, 2-3 out of the gopher hole exhibit!! They were fascinated with the sloth bear. It was perfect for us that some playground equipment was intergrated throughout. Nice park, great value. thanks.

Small zoo in downtown Boise by the river. Not a lot of animals, but a nice little mix. We've held our company picnic here the last 2 summers and they seem to always be updating and making improvements.

I like the size and intimacy at this zoo- often you are the only one in front of an animal- so you know they are really looking at you. My kids can almost see the entire zoo twice- as they run the first time through. Its totally manageable and I have never seen a big crowd
