We took a Sunday trip into Missouri after hearing about this place. I have never been to a more interactive petting zoo. The kids were enthralled for about two hours as they fed and hugged on various animals and rode the pony. My youngest was in awe of the parakeet enclosure. Wielding two popsicle sticks laden with bird seed, she... More

Love this place & what they're doing - breeding programs, etc. It's small, but staff is super friendly and helpful. More of a "petting zoo" kinda place - we finished in about an hour... took us longer to drive there. Great place, but wouldn't make a special trip

Had an enjoyable time today at this petting zoo. It is a little smaller than I expected, but there are lots of animals and a nice variety. We spent a leisurely couple of hours there. One bag of food was plenty for us, but it was mostly one child doing the feeding. We also bought a bird stick and went... More

This is a cute place for the kids to learn about animals. The peacocks roam free, the deer eat from your hand and the zebras stand tall on the hillside. I thought it was a little expensive at $7 a person (we had 5 people) so my wife just stayed in the car while the kids ran free. You'll have... More

We went to the Discovery Playhouse, Nature Center, & then the Lazy L Safari. This place was fun, but more of a huge petting zoo than a "safari." There are goats, deer, pigs, camels, zebras, and all sorts of animals you can see up close & feed. You can buy a huge bag of food. My kids really enjoyed it.... More

The Lazy L Safari Park is fantastic. It's an unknown gem that's a great stop on the way to or from St. Louis if you live South of St. L. Lots of friendly "wild" animals feeding and petting opportunities. You can go inside the pen and hold the baby goats. Very interactive but small park. You can probably do everything... More

Took our granddaughter to visit the critters, but didn't know much about this well-kept secret. A lot of the warm-weather critters were already put into their their winter habitats, but the various goats and deer kept everybody entertained with their antics. The camels didn't want to be left out of all the attention either. Quite a nice selection of animals... More

It may be smaller than most people would think a zoo should be but the zoo is great. There are many types of animals to view from all around the world and cameal and pony rides are amazingly fun for anybody to take part in. The cost of the admission ($7.00) plus tax is great for the amount of animals... More

Not a whole day, but a good two hours. They have a lot of different animals. It is clean and the owners are very friendly.
