This is such a quality zoo- it’s very manageable for kids to walk, the exhibits are great, and the little park is so great for a quick play if you have your kids. Everyone here is helpful and friendly and they do different types of teaching moments which is fantastic.

This was a great way to spend the day. We enjoyed being able to get up close and personal with the animals. Also the students working were very friendly and shared wonderful information about the exhibits. This is a must do if you are in the area.

Lovely small zoo. What makes it so special is the students who are pleased to explain everything about the zoo and the animals. Highly recommend a visit.

We enjoyed our visit to Gainesville's Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo. Keepers are students at the local community college who are committed to zookeeping careers. For a small facility, the Zoo has a varied collection of mammals (including a tree kangaroo), birds, and reptiles. Animals were relaxed and in large and clean enclosures.
