Small but good!

Small zoo but extremely clean and great animals. Wish it took more than 30 minutes but great for small kids. Discount for residence is great too.

When I'm traveling and have a few hours of free time, if there is a zoo close by, I like to drop in and spend an hour or two. The Attleboro City zoo is better than most. But not as good as some of the others in the bigger cities. The Oklahoma City Zoo has more large cats. lions, tigers,... More

This is a city zoo similar to Buttonwoods Park Zoo in New Bedford. The animals on display are beautiful and well kept. The exhibits are clean and groomed. There is a splash pad that is just enough to cool the kids and is entertaining for them as well. Outside the zoo is a large playground for an added bonus. Overall... More

This zoo has always been one of my favorites when I am taking out young children, as the admission for kids under 3 is free and 3-12 is very affordable, and it's the perfect size to keep the attention of the kids throughout without the exhaustion meltdown that often comes with larger zoos. It's small enough that I was never... More

It was wonderful. We loved the water area for the kids. I recommend this Zoo for trips during the summer. This is very good for a family with young children.

It's a great place to take kids on a hot summer day. Nothing like seeing the animals, having an ice cream, and bring a bathing suit for the splash pad

This is a great little zoo for children of all ages. It's not only a nice zoo, but they also have a small water park like area that our little ones really enjoy. The staff is also kind and courteous. There is also a food court during the summer time that serves ice cream as well as a variety of... More

We wanted to check out a new Zoo and this was suggested to us. It is about a 45 minute ride form where we live and that is about the amount of time it takes to walk through the Zoo. Nice variety of animals but it is very small. Our girls enjoyed it but we will probably not make it... More
