We fed all kinds of birds, including the free roaming peacocks, a turkey, some emu, a dear , some spoonbills, ibis, ducks, doves, and parakeet. We saw lions and tigers , monkeys and... More

I love this little zoo! My granddaughter is 2 and loves the great outdoors. The size and layout of this zoo is a perfect place for the littles ones to run free. There are plenty of animals to feed and even a train to ride. The staff was also very helpful and friendly. Planning to visit regularly.

The Victoria zoo is simple, loving, and inviting. You can spend all day there or just 30 minutes. It's easy for small children to enjoy and be done quickly. It's nice for adults who just want to connect with animals.

Although this is a somewhat smaller zoo and does not have giraffes or elephants, it is still excellent. We were VERY impressed and it is especially fantastic for small children. We completed the entire zoo in just over an hour before the little one had a chance to tire. She totally delighted in being introduced to the many different animals.... More

Visited this zoo last year. It is small, but nicely laid out and enough animals to spend a very pleasant few hours. I will enjoy returning again.

The zoo is not the big but it is a very sweet place to take a stroll and enjoy all animals. The bird area was fun since you're able to feed them. It was also nice seeing the peacocks roaming around the park and not caged. Not too keen on the chicken coop but regardless we had a good time... More

We went on a Sunday and admission to the zoo was free. There was a lecture and alligator feeding as well as free hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, cookies provided by the Rotary Club. Great weather, good facility.

small area which makes for a nice outing, the kids don't get tired and hungry before your done. I was pleasantly surprised to see a zoo in a small town like Victoria.

We did the primate encounter. It was on groupon so it wasn't so expensive. We had a blast. 2 kids ages 3 and 2 and Colton was our zoo rep. He's fantastic and I would ask for him if you go. He was amazing with our kids and made sure everyone had a great time. The zoo is small but... More

I like that the zoo is small and you don't have to worry about losing your children. The staff is helpful and friendly and they give informative lessons on some of their animals.
