“Good way to kill an hour”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The zoo was so small and the animal enclosures were equally as tiny. There was no open natural concept, just animals in small displsys or in cages. The place should be shut down and the animals sent to a larger facility where they can roam in expanded enclosures. The zoo should be more of a petting zoo and avery. The large cats should be housed elsewhere.

“Not much here...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

This place could use some rich donors (as could I <(*_*)> ) They can only do so much with what little money they are given. Upkeep alone must cost a small fortune. I would like to see more types of animals brought in and other events than just the Halloween event.

“Lacking Something”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Animals can hardly be seen when you visit. The zoo is rather small and have animals native to Texas. Since the weather is on the hot and humid side in South Texas the animals like to stay hidden.

“Good Local Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Although the Victoria Zoo isn't as large as the zoos you might find in Houston or San Antonio, this place offers lots of events and lots of animals!

“Unexpected Treasure”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Who would have thought of this nice little zoo in Victoria!?! Nothing like Brookfield in Chicago, but just as valuable an asset to the community. A great find.
