If you're looking for animals you'll find them here but not many and don't expect much from the maze of pathways. Price is pretty reasonable but I felt like the main attraction were the amount of peacocks, ducks and geese throughout the park. Didn't see any information about shows or places where people could pet animals. Many of the encounters... More

Thank you, Robert. for your review. You have touched upon several items that we are currently working on. Our Zoo has been in the same spot since the mid 50s and has been expanded in bits and pieces over the years, hence the maze of pathways. We do have a map of the grounds available at the ticket window, I'm... More

It's been a while since I've been to the 2nd largest zoo in the State of New Mexico. So many improvements have been made and the flow was great!

Clovis has done an excellent job improving the zoo and making nice trails and animal exhibits. The giraffes are one of my favorites!

Since our first visit here this zoo has been updated a bit and the animals don't seem as depressed as the first few times we went. They have giraffes, bears, tigers, etc, but it is by no means a large zoo. Great to take the family to when they come visiting or to have a day out with the kids.... More

Been here a few times and even though it is not close to what I am use to, it is not bad for Clovis. Able to see everything in an hour and great walk with family or young children. Only thing that would be nice is better concessions stands along the walk.

Cheap prices a decent sized zoo considering where it's located. Maybe something to do once every 2 years but not regularly. Bears, wolves, monkeys, snakes, alligators, bald eagle, has a variety... Clean zoo. Takes about 30 min to walk through. Bathrooms throughout though don't know the cleanliness of them.

This is a very small and depressing zoo! Go support so you can help the animals recieve bigger living quarters! Cost is $4 and this is the smallest zoo I've seen.

The recent upgrades have made this venue a real highlight and a great getaway to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Excellent exhibits and well maintained. Could still use some upgrades in some areas but a lot of progress has occurred over the last year.
