It cost 8 dollars for a family of four. Not very big but a great time all the same. Very nice exhibits. Definitely worth the time and money. Would love to go back.

A smaller zoo in southern New Mexico. We spent less than 2 hours walking around the entire park. Favorite part was the duck pond that had a few turtles in it.

We were visiting family in town so we took the kids ages 8 and 6 here to visit. It's a actually a nice facility for a smaller town. Try to go first thing in the morning when it's cooler out. The animals are less active and visible in the heat of the day.

Lived in Alamogordo since 2009 (It's 2016 as I write this), and had never visited the zoo until grand kids came to visit. I'm giving it an average rating only because it's not much compared to other zoos, but that made no difference to my grand daughters, who loved it. It's really quite a nice zoo for a city of...

Got in to town and saw the zoo so stopped. Great price of only $2.50. Nice exhibits and fun play area for children

Go early. The earlier the better as the animals are out. A small zoo, but very nice for it's size. Animals are very visible and many have no fear of humans. The aviary was excellent and got some great photos.. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable

Too many if animals in very small enclosures (panther and bear especially). But if the new pond area is an indication of how they are moving forward that's a good sign. Big plus was how cheap it was. But the playground is in direct sunlight all day. Not good on a summer vacation.

While this zoo can't compare to zoo's in larger cities, we were really pleasantly surprised by how much they had and how well it was done. We only went there as something to do with our small child. But this ended up being the highlight of Alamogordo.

Nice couple of hours spent here. It is a small zoo, but well maintained. Had grandsons with us ( ages 4 and 5 ) they had a good time.

We recently had some time to waste while waiting on our vehicle and walked through the zoo and relaxed in the shade on one of the benches. Nice green areas, clean. The animals are all cute Although several were hiding due to the daylight. Great for kids with plenty of room for them to run around and play. More different... More
