They have some larger animals; however would suggest early daytime visit, before the school buses arrive. Also, the walking trails... not as well marked as for each area attraction, and location....... you may... More

Wonderful zoo for a town the size of Waco. Beautiful, well kept grounds and animal areas. Will be going back when the grand children come again.

The zoo was ok - it really needs more animals to display but for the price it was alright - the snake house was nice as well as the owl display - was a little disappointed as the zoo could be better

I not normally visit Zoos but someone gave me free tickets. The animals appear to be looked after in a proper manner. I had a bit of difficulty finding my way out.

Great small zoo, easily navigable, well priced and nicely curated exhibits. Strongly recommend for families with kids, experience very kid friendly, much more so even than most of the big zoo's we have been to. The size seems just right for an easy afternoons entertainment. We stopped on a Sunday, spent a few enjoyable hours and felt like the admission... More

The Cameron Park Zoo is an awesome zoo, especially for the size of the community. We keep a family membership every year, and they are constantly working to improve. it. It is great for families, couples or friends to walk and experience all of the animals and exhibits. It is well laid out, and is not so massive that you... More

I am from Waco originally. For me, this is the "new zoo" that was built when I was a teenager, and I'd only been once when I was 14 (I'm 34 now). This summer I went with my sister, husband, and toddler, and was so pleased! Despite the oppressive Texas heat, the zoo is designed in such a way that... More

Lots to see. Don't miss the Otters as they play and you can watch them through plexiglas. Enjoy! You will also enjoy the elephants and giraffes in their natural habitat.

We were looking for something to do that would get us out of the house for a while. We are empty nesters, and wanted to go for a walk outdoors and thought about the zoo. What a great place to spend a few hours!!
