Real good way to kill about an hour and a half. The Bears were awesome and very active. A lot of other animals were sleepy and not active maybe do to heat. A lot of neat animals... read more

I realize the zoo is still recovering from the flood, but I was very concerned with the small size of the large cat cages. And the monkeys were in a building that we could only stand at the door and look in and could only see the ones on the end, and the bird avairy smelled terrible. I'm hoping these... More

Only disappointment was missing penguins again this year. Would go again next year. If in Minot and you have kids... More

Minot's Roosevelt Park Zoo is a small gem, nestled inside the larger Roosevelt Park. The Zoo straddles the Souris River, and part of the Zoo is accessible by a footbridge crossing the river. They have done significant reconstruction since the Souris River flooded several years ago. Old trees shade the walkways. The highlights include a new penguin pool, giraffe feeding,... More

Well kept zoo. Still in the process of flood clean up but such a wonderful place to visit with kids. It is a smaller zoo but worth seeing because there really isn't that much to do in the Minot Area. I recommend this zoo and its a great excuse to get outside and spend time with family! :)

Roosevelt Park Zoo is a nice place to take the family. It's a nice walk and quite enjoyable to see all the animals. They were doing some construction last time I was there. I will visit again this year and update my review at that time.

The zoo is pretty nice for a smaller zoo. Lots of animals and interesting. I just went to a zoo in California recently and it made me think of my visit to minots zoo this past summer. The thing I really didn't like about the zoo, was how poorly the cats looked. They were covered in flies and bugs so... More

The penguins are the best part of this zoo by far! They seem so active and happy its fun to watch them slide around and hop into the pool!

The zoo has been under renovation a bit, mostly to accommodate the influx of higher income, I'm sure. It's being done beautifully. Lots of neat animals! They have amazing programs offered for the kids, the ZooBoo was NEAT and the Christmas at the Zoo was also pretty unique. Love this zoo.

We've have always enjoyed the Minot Zoo. We've been going there for almost 30 yrs. It's a nice clean well maintained zoo. It makes for a nice pleasant day.
