A great zoo to take kids to, plenty of rest areas and visibility for little kids is very good. The paths are fairly easy to navigate as they go back and forth with gradual inclines on nice walkways. Very stroller friendly and even elderly walker friendly in my opinion. Lots of shade and areas to relax.

Great zoo, not to big. Very shaded all throughout. A/C areas to stop and rest. Train ride was neat for little kids, not so much for older kids.

This is a lovely clean zoo where all the animals look great and well cared. Great activities always happening and a wonderful snack bar and food place to grab a cold drink and snack.

We love to go see what's new or recently added to the zoo. It's a great walk with lots of animals. The only issue I've had is the amounts of trash people throw on the ground during a big event. Anytime there's an event, the kids have a great time. We would love to see an elephant here!

We always enjoy visiting this zoo. Small but entertaining. Cute gift shop too! My kids love getting to feed the koi fish, a highlight of our visit!! The train ride is a nice break from the walking

Our trip to the Alexandria Zoological Park was super fun! Most of the animals were out for the public to see! I think a skunk was loose in the park the night before, made the wild life experience feel real! Lol beautiful park, easy to follow the map, has a drink stand in the middle which was awesome for a...

Small park but with a lot to off to offer. Visited with the family with our granddaughters. (3 weeks and 2 years). Two year old really enjoyed it. Took the train ride too and she didn't want to get off. :)

This place isn't a large zoo so don't go there expecting the San Diego Zoo. It's clean and nice for the size. You won't see as many animals as a big zoo but they keep the place up and it has good shade. It's a decent value for the family.
