We had such a fabulous time visiting the Zoo of Acadiana. With two little ones (ages 2 1/2 and 6 months), it was perfect. Very shaded, lots of animals to enjoy. The train run was cute. We enjoyed our day here.

Had a great reptile exhibit, farm animal petting zoo, wolves, Tigers, giraffes, leopard... Did not sample any food, because we brought our own snacks. Fun, quiet, relaxing... More

I love going to zoos, but this is not my favorite. It's not very big, but it sure is expensive. I only go when I can't travel to Baton Rouge, because it's 5mins from my house.

Nice small zoo that is well taken care of. Kids will love it. The animals are beautiful. Again not a big zoo but run with a lot of love and care. Nice little day trip for the whole family.

We took our grandson for the first time. The zoo was run down looking on the outside but I thought maybe that it would better once inside. There wasn't enough signs telling you were things were but that was the least of the concerns because at over half of the enclosures, there were not any animal at all. And then... More

It was a lot bigger than I expected. Done up nice for Christmas. Not much in the way of food, best to pack your own lunch. Plenty of animals to see and some to feed and pet.

From the time you drive up into the potted gravel parking lot, and pay the extra high entrance fee to the one person working the whole entrance area, you will start wondering. There is a old wore out train for the kids, and some of the animals look like they are in distress. Zoo definitely needs some attention, expansion, and... More

I'm not sure if I arrived at feeding time, but the animals were really engaged and seemed interested in visitors. It was a nice visit.

What a treat to stroll through the park with all the lights, worth the trip and be sure to take the train ride as this can be a great way to see some of the animals not in a small in-closer Give yourself plenty of time and enjoy
