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

This is a small zoo, with mostly local animals and a few exotic creatures. The grounds are quite nice, and a river runs through it. The admission charge is very reasonable, and I always like to stop here when I am in town. Nice way to spend a day.

We were very impressed with this little zoo! May be small but they do a great job with the animals. They took away the ability to feed the animals in the petting zoo because of the threat of the bird flu which we understood but that was the only disappointing thing. Overall a great place to spend a couple hours... More

Roosevelt Park Zoo is a comparatively small zoo. It doesn't take very long to see everything. However, the variety of animal and bird species is terrific. I particularly like that the zoo has a lot of shade trees there, making the hot days much more bearable. The zoo is clean, much more than other zoos I have visited. My family's... More

We would highly recommend the Roosevelt Park Zoo as a Minot attraction. It is small zoo, but has a diverse collection of animals, including penguins, giraffes, Japanese Serows (revered goats), lions, tigers, bears, apes, monkeys, kangaroos to name a few. The grounds were well maintained and overall a great family experience. The gift shop had many things of interest. It... More

Nice clean small zoo. Looks like they take good care of the animals. Great if you have small children. I enjoyed it by myself, they even have a train there. There is a park and a pool nearby as well. Price is reasonable and they do offer deal days and events during the year.
