This review is honest and from my VERY RECENT experience on this past Saturday July 5, 2014. My family which consisted of 3 adults and 1 child visited this poorly maintained zoo. It wasn't actually a zoo more like a farm. The only time the zookeepers and/or employees spoke to you is when they were asking for money. There were... More

This is a small-town zoo, good for your child's first zoo visit. Plan to go when the weather is nice. The price is pretty steep for a zoo. I think it was $11 or $12 per person? $7.50 for kids. They have giraffes, llamas, a few farm animals in a petting zoo, birds, a pygmy hippo, reptiles, lemurs, a black... More

Very few animals, very small, grass over grown. The cost is $11, they should increase the ticket price and up grade the zoo. Very disappointing.

$30 for 2 adults and a child for the sorriest exhibit of a zoo I have EVER experienced! All the animals were far from exotic! A bunch of birds and small monkeys. 1 white tiger that looked like it weighed 90lbs. A sorry excuse for a aquarium, the place looked like it hadn't been cleaned, the structure was falling apart...

A great place to enjoy a leisurely stroll, in the shade, or not, with the grandkids... many things to do and see for all ages. Our grandkids love the train ride and the huge play area... of course we always need to stop and refresh ourselves with a hot dog, chips and a drink. No matter the age our grand... More

Great family fun....do ride the train see the gibbon island and camels, zebra and deer. Catch the zoo show.The staff is wonderful with the animals and the kids! Love the owl in the show we saw. My favorite exhibits were the tiger, giraffe and the monkeys! Lots of beautiful birds and loud parrots. Even in the winter this place is... More

We just did a quick walk-thru of the zoo one afternoon. There seemed to be a lot of activities for kids (we were there on a cold day in the off season, so many weren't open/operating), like a zoo tour train, nice playground, and nice gift shop. We enjoyed the more treed setting in this zoo, and loved the alligator... More

I had previously written a review for this Zoo. Since my first review, I became a member and have visited several times. I am happy to see so many improvements over the last couple months, especially the new fencing. I was also happy to see the Golden Bengals have been moved to a much roomier area with a pool. As...

Don't waste your money. My wife and I went here this afternoon. The animals are living in horrible conditions. They're obviously not being taken care of. The zoo maintenance has fallen extremely behind. The area for the birds was a joke. The pen for the red fox was about the size of a kennel. The layout is ridiculous. I will... More

I took my 13 month old son to the Zoo of Acadiana in the middle of the day. It was really hot but we were able to see everything in about an hour. They had a wonderful variety of animals - tigers, lions, giraffes and lots of monkeys. My son is too young, but he'll probably love it in a... More
