Me and my wife went to this zoo. It is cool. It isn't like San Diego Zoo or Hogel Zoo in Salt Lake City but it is worth going. They have a good variety of animals there and activities for all ages. We hoped to go on the mini cruise but it was shut down because of the weather. Yet,... More

Then between the baby wallaby (Joey?) peeking out of his mommas pouch, the gorgeous and rare snow leopards, the lions, tigers, and (sloth) bears,... More

Have visited many zoos over my lifetime, and I found this to be a great little zoo. Most of the exhibits provide exceptional habitat for their animals. They have an interesting assortment of animals and a beautiful setting to stroll through.

Zoo Boise is a great little zoo. They have many animals and are always looking at improving their spaces. My family and I visit at least a couple times a year. The Butterfly exhibit is a must see!!!

A pretty large zoo for Boise. They keep adding new attractions and the animals seem to be in great shape. The zoo is clean with many educational events for all ages. Love the giraffes!
