“The best little zoo in texas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2008

I have visited the Ellen Trout Zoo many times and I never get tired of it. I love all zoo's but this little zoo really just takes the cake. It has an excellent array of animal species but you won't be tired from doing miles of walking to see them. The landscape of this zoo is beautiful and the layout is such that you may go all day and only see a few other people, which is great for couples or for families trying to teach little ones about all the animals of the world. The parking lot is close so you won't be tired by the time you get to the entrance like larger zoos. All in all it is just a great place to visit and it won't empty your wallet. But, don't take my word for it, go visit Ellen Trout Zoo and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
