A very small but very worth the 5$ per person charge as it is very well mantain and teh animals look clean, well feed and happy (As happy as one can be living in a zoo!) We made a pit stop on our way to New orleans and kill about two hours. I would say don't pay for the train... More

The zoo is small but well planned and fun to visit. They have a train you can ride. Displays are clean and animals well cared for. Also there is a water pad where kids can play. My grandchildren love to go to the zoo.

Many improvements have been made over the years and it's an excellent small zoo for families to visit. Nothing like it for many miles around. My husband and I always loved walking through and seeing the variety of animals. We've recently moved to the Huntsville AL area and I was disappointed that such a huge city doesn't have a zoo.

It is a small zoo but I am glad that Hattiesburg actually has a zoo. The jaguar was absolutely gorgeous and the way it winded you around made you feel like it was just a little bit bigger than it was. A perfect thing to do on a sunny day!

I took my husband here a couple of months ago and I had not been there in 20 years. This place has undergone major renovations. I was so impressed. What a great place to have in my hometown. I will definitely take my nieces and nephews they next time I see them. We had a great day at the zoo.... More

This is a very nice zoo for the size. Also, there is a train ride and splash pad for kids. They have special events on holidays too. "ZooBoo" during Halloween and lights/decorations during Christmas.

Good layout for viewers. The zoo has a variety of habitats that were more natural and appropriate for the animals. Impressive for a city this size.

Great prices, friendly staff, and nice exhibits. It is a small zoo but still fun. The info on all the animals was interesting and you could see the animals almost no matter where they sat. There were a few interactive things to play with and food to feed a few animals with. I liked how they grouped some animals together... More

It is a small zoo but very well taken care of. Movie nights during summer, special events, a nice water fountain for kids to cool off, it is worth a visit.
