“Nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

The zoo is good but the animals are not very well maintained. The zoo is under renovation and is known that it will get better.

“zoo”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

The overall maintenance is pathetic. The place is mapped out shabbily. Encroachments for animals are not well maintened. The place is very very dirty and filthy. The toilets are a shame. Visitors follow nio rule for littering eith plastic and paper. feel sorry for the animals

“Kolkata Zoo”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

A good place to spend the day and also picnic.
Specially with kids.
Though the animal lovers will not like the way most of the animals are kept and the condition,size of most cages.

“A great collection but needs to improve facilities”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

The Alipore Zoo perhaps boasts of the best collections amongst the Indian zoos. But it is still far behind international standards as far as viewing experience and cleanliness is concerned. It is definitely worth a visit. I seriously hope some better planning goes towards this place to improve facilities and if that costs a higher entry fee so be it. The collection of animals is truly superb.
