We took some out of town family here b/c my sister loves giraffes and here you can feed them. I thought it was a bit expensive to feed them, especially b/c I have 4 kids. It's 5.00 for a half a head of leaf lettuce. The ladies working it were really nice though and we had good picture opportunities and... More

Magnificent zoo!! We went there on a hot day, so most of the mammals were staying away from the heat and resting. However, the zoo offers an incredible variety of animals: from chickens to lions to penguins!! Staff were very nice and help me out when my youngest fell and scraped his knee. I will definitely visit the zoo again!

Had not been to the Roosevelt Park and Zoo in 30 years to be exact when we got married there. I hardly recognized it and it was for the better. Loved seeing the Otters and Giraffes especially. A bit more walking over the bridge for the petting zoo, so has expanded a bit. Love the added "farm" buildings and nice... More

I was pleasantly surprised by Roosevelt Park Zoo. City Parks can be depressing and uncomfortable. They had a wide variety of animals [lions, gibbons, penguins, tigers, zebra and giraffes that you can feed lettuce at particular times. The wealth of trees in Roosevelt Park is a real asset to visitors and to the animals -- so much shade. It was... More

Small zoo suitable for young children. Ability to get closer to animals than most zoos was exciting for the kids.

The zoo in Minot may be small but there are lots of different animals worth seeing. The latest addition are the Red Panda's, lots of fun to watch as are the otters and the penguins. The staff does a great job of taking care of the animals and the zoo is very clean.

Went to the zoo with family. Because of a major flood a few years ago, the zoo has undergone significant changes. We were lucky to receive a tour at no cost because the normal price is a bit high.

We have been here several times and enjoy it. There is a nice variety of animals. Always fun to cross the river to see the other side. Hopefully we can feed the giraffes this year.

This zoo is really a nice family attraction and it is small enough that everyone can get a chance to see and enjoy the animals. We went on a Saturday and it wasn't crowded at all, so I'm assuming week days would be even less so. They have an amazing variety of animals and all seem well-cared for. Prices were... More
