“Perfect afternoon with children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

What a surprise! A town of this size has such a terrific zoo! It is not huge but the variety of animals is excellent. The animals apear well cared for and happy, which is a must for me to pay money to see. Too many zoos resemble animal prisons but Bramble Park Zoo does not. It feels good to visit up close with healthy and content "wild" animals. Like the tiggers who rub their faces on the window of their exhibit where my three year old was scratching and saying, "here kitty kitty!".
There is a lot to do and many play areas scattered around. The grounds are clean and quite lovely. It's a nice place just to go for a stroll. We usually go durring the week and have the zoo to ourselves. We have a membership so we often stop in for an hour or so on shopping days and my children love it. This is truly a gem!

“Great family park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

If you have kids this is a must stop for Watertown. My wife and I make a couple trips a year just to go to the school. No it's not huge like Sioux Falls. But it does have some wild life and it's fun to visit.

“Fun place for family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Our family takes a couple trips a year to this zoo... If you don't like the zoo that takes all day to get through and you want to just have a few hour walk through/getaway this is the zoo to go to... I absolutely love the exhibits as its very kid friendly and easy for them to see all the animals!!!
