“Great Zoo, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The Clovis zoo is realyl a must see when in Clovis. They have a large varity of animals including a new baby giraffe. Zoo has been there since the 40's when it was run by Mr. Green who was also the parks and recreation director and live within a block of the zoo. As a young boy, I laid in bed at night and listene to the lions roar and dreamed of Tarzan and Jungle Jim and exotic Affrica.. It was cool then and its cool now......go visit and you won't be disappointed.

“Very Good Zoo With Interesting Animals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

This is a nicely kept small zoo with many unique and interesting animals. It exceeded expectations for a small town zoo. The animal enclosures are very generous but didn't allow us to get very close to view or photograph the animals.
The zoo location among many shade trees is wonderful for the visitors as well as the inhabitants. The $3.00 admission makes this zoo an affordable outing for families.

we hadn't been in a while but they have cleaned it up a lot and have quite a few more animals and the grandkids loved it, so that is all that matters
