Mill Mountain Zoo is a small zoo with the animals kept in areas small enough to allow you to easily see them. Because of its size, it is ideal for toddlers who get tired of walking and want to get up close to the animals.

This zoo is a good little zoo. It's probably best for children. It's really a no frills zoo. It doesn't take long to get through which I think parents will like. I wish some the animal habitats were bigger, but this is an older zoo. All in all it is a good little zoo especially if you don't have much... More

The Roanoke zoo is a relatively small zoo located in a beautiful park. It doesn't have any spectacular exhibits but has a nice variety of animals. If your children are looking for lions, and tigers, and elephants they will be disappointed. It was not crowded even on a beautiful Saturday morning. It is really geared for young children ages 6...

This zoo is small but packed with lots of animals and experiences right here in Roanoke, Great for a small little trip and then go visit the Discovery Center up near parking lot.

We recently needed a venue to gather several family members with young children. The zoo was the perfect place. It is enough to interest small children, but not large enough to tire them out. The discovery center was also nice since it is hands on, and I would like to see that portion enlarged. I remember the zoo being larger,... More

not the biggest Zoo in America. You will love the small atmosphere along with the view. You are up close and personal with the animals. Ride the train. Nice place to be able to share nature with your kids.

My 2nd trip to the zoo. Small & quaint. Good prices, unique animals, train wasn't running. Wonder about the size of the snow leopard pen, if it's big enough as one was just pacing. Staff quickly removed a copperhead snake found in the vulture enclosure. Didn't visit the gift shop. A snack bar would be a plus if the gift... More

Looking for something to do with the kids to kill sometime and not spend a fortune. This was a nice find. Small Zoo but worth the price.

My wife and I stopped in July. Both of us work in the Zoo field so going and checking out zoos is something that we love to do. We had heard this was a small zoo but well worth the visit. Glad that we went out of our way to visit this zoo. The staff were very friendly. While checking... More

Definitely not worth driving a long distance to, but if you are a local or in the area it's worth visiting. For the small assortment of animals , the tickets are a bit pricey. We have been to other small zoos , but this is by far the smallest we have seen. Also, as an animal lover, it breaks my... More
