The Salisbury Zoo is a great zoo for young children. Although it's small, it's well maintained and easily navigated. It would be nice if there were a few bigger animals like camels or zebras, but the ocelot was neat. I think the bears were sequestered with new cubs and it was pretty cold for the alligator. So, we didn't see... More

This is a small zoo in a small city. It is free but has lots of wonderful species to see. They organize seasonal themed events which are usually very popular with parents and kids. Their Halloween night is a must attend event if you are into zooing!

The Salisbury Zoo is a truly amazing zoo for a small town! Our family had a fabulous experience because of the amazing zookeepers, Ian, Ann and Lauren. The zoo is a nice size with a fabulous variety of animals that are clearly well taken care of and loved by the staff. The park is a beautiful setting in the trees... More

Small old fashioned zoo, with too small cages full of sad animals living out their pathetic lives in captivity.Hidden in one corner of the central Park this relic hasn't stood the test of time, time to get some more land and expand the property or close it down,

A well regarded zoo.Small enough to see without tiring children, the physically disabled or seniors and large enough to show a lot of north American animals. The educational opportunities are abundant and Ben's Red Swing playground adds an extra treat.

Definitely not a big city zoo but a frat place to wonder and relax. Several play areas for young kids and a great walking path. Picnic tables also available.

While certainly not the same as a large city zoo, it's fun and educational, especially for younger children. Has facilities for picnics and surrounding area offers paddle boats and structured play areas. Would recommend for a visit, especially since the animals most featured are those from the area.

Generally a great place to visit. Play area is nice, lots of animals, walking trails and other things to do. Typically can find parking unless a unseasonably warm day and it is very busy. Clean.
