“"Secret Zoo"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a great hidden gem in Athens. Is located in a pretty section of Athens, with huge trees to surround the park. Besides bears they have beavers, bald eagles, owls and various other animals. Very well done!

“Nature and animals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Nice little indigenous zoo with bears, owls, gaters, etc from the region. The animals all looked happy and relaxed living in the local woods. And a community that can keep this kind of zoo clean and free is to be applauded!

“Cool little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

It's hard to find if you don't know exactly where you're going. We stopped and asked a park goer! But, it was a lot of fun. We got several pictures. It's small, doesn't take long, but the bears were my favorite!

“Small but worth a stroll”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Tucked deep in a neighborhood, you would not anticipate seeing wild life, but secured. A couple of nice paths and interesting Georgia native fauna. Nice for a solitary walk or with the children and the fact that it's free is a great treat.
