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.

Having lived in rather large cities, the Alexandria Zoo never disappoints. Large variety of animals, clean, well kept, great layout, knowledgeable employees, nice gift shop. As anywhere in the south, hot in summer but plenty of shade.

This is a nice little zoo but no big animals. No elephants, no gorillas or giraffes. They do have a cool white tiger!

I know it's a zoo, but this place smells really bad all over. Not very many animals, and the ones they have look like they hate their life, except the monkeys. The monkeys were cool to see swinging around and yelling.

A visit here is always wonderful! The zoo staff and zookeepers are very friendly and will stop to talk and explain what they are feeding the animals, what the animals are like, etc., like chatting with friends! Highly recommended!
