Certain areas are covered and there's a park area for young kids. It's a great mini outing for families with toddlers or stay at home mom's during the week. I'm from a small... More

We have brought our grandchildren here on many occasions. The layout of the zoo is child friendly with lots of different exhibits. The children really enjoy coming here.

The animals are in natural type surroundings and given room to roam. They have year round activities going on and occasional free entrance days. Children love this zoo as do the adults who visit.

While others may say this is a good zoo for Waco, it is in fact a great zoo for a city our size. It is well kept, clean and always a great family outing. We have had a membership for the past 4 years and is a good value.

It was beautiful scenery, and a lot of beautiful creatures. I had to laugh when we got to the butterfly sanctuary. There were... More

I've been to this zoo numerous times but taking my 1 year old daughter there for the first time was very special. She really enjoyed the animals and playgrounds. Even though it was spring break it wasn't extremely crowed, which was very nice.
