Great stop for the whole family. Not a bad littlw city zoo. Very clean though enclosures need to be larger for many animals. Super cheap rides- beautiful carousel and the train ride saved a ton of walking. Can't beat $.25 a ticket

When we were told about the Zoo in town we figured why not, we had some time to spend. When we were told it was FREE we had to go. You know, it is what it is, a Free town Zoo. It is just a few blocks off of Main St. and easy to get to and back from. It... More

I don't know where the other reviewers have been but the 'zoo' is horrible. I first went into the office to ask a couple of questions, waited five minutes and no one ever came to help me even though I could hear talking in another room. Not ONCE was I greeted by any zoo employee. If you want to see... More

This is such a nice zoo with friendly workers and cool exhibits. There are unique animals to look at, and your children will love it. Where else can you get up this close to such animals? Everyone needs to see animals up close like this. The animals are well taken care of. The carousel is fantasic. It is very old... More

Not a huge zoo, but it has bears, lions, cougars, a lot of birds and a really neat train ride for the family. A nice way to kill an hour or two on a slow afternoon.

Not bad for a free zoo. Would not be worth it if they charged any money. Not very many animals to look at.

It's free for everyone to walk through. My kids like to go and look at the animals. It's made a nice place for my daughter's photography class also. We love being able to see the animals there. It doesn't take long to go through. And there's a carousel and train you can ride for a small fee at the end.

It was a nice place with nice animals to see. It is free and my son liked it a lot. They also have a playground for the kids and a lake with a lot of ducks that my son fed.

The park and zoo are beloved in Roswell. The zoo maintains a free admission policy. Animals from all over the world (and especially from the region) are very much at home. Add in the knowledgeable and excellent staff and you have a great experience. In the summer, the historic carousel and miniature train transport me back to my childhood. There... More
