My older daughter and I went here when we had a few hours to spare before she visited the university. Very cute; would be perfect for small children, although we learned a lot too. Very good bargain for $5.

The animals were all out and easily seen. It was clean, and well maintained. Although it isn't a very large zoo, it... More

Excellent layout and enjoyable for young and old. Very educational for the kids and well worth the price of admission. I especially love the small gauge train around the park.my kids and grandkids often go there and we picnic in the park. Fun family outing.

What a wonderful surprise this out-of-the-way place turned out to be. The educational aspect and explanations for each of the animal exhibits were superb, easy to get around all of the exhibits; a very quaint train ride was available and the cost is extremely reasonable.

Ok, if you are wanting to visit a 'Huge' Zoo...this is not the place for you...but, if you want a nice place to take the kids for a few hours of fun this might be the place. They have enough animals to give children a fun time, with trails and a great little train ride! The train will circle the... More

We always love visiting the Hattiesburg Zoo. They have great attractions and always are working to add more fun things. We have always enjoyed coming to Zoo Boo at Halloween too.

This is an amazing zoo for a town of this size! Many exotic animals in natural habitat settings. Miniature train ride around the perimeter, as well as a carrousel. Don't miss this one!

I love the zoo. It's very clean and lively. It has the water spurts for the kids to play in now, and they have so much more to see and do. I'll just go there for some me time just to whine down. It's a great place to get some stress relief and just think.

Thank Linda M
