It is not the biggest zoo but the kids love it and it is not too exhausting for the parents. It is probably best for younger kids.

Beautiful grounds with lots of shade to walk through in. Water fountain area for the kids to get wet and play. Merry go round and a great cafe on the water where you can eat inside or out.. And of course all the animals.

I love it here, it was amazing. I'm definitely thinking of going back. It didn't have a whole variety of animals, but, we still had fun.

We visited this zoo when my oldest was 2.5 years old. We were in town visiting family and their house is small, we needed something kid oriented to do. This zoo is wonderful. It is very well laid out, the aesthetic is wonderful, it is spotless and bright. The displays are visually stunning.The kids are safe to run and look... More

This is a very small zoo. Their are more birds than other types of animals. Aquatic animals water was filthy. Definitely needs to be remodeled or updated. Not the best conditions for those poor animals.

There is a lot to like about the zoo. It's close to the city. It has nice landscaping. There's a bunch of monkeys. Unfortunately I didn't find that the admission price justified what they had. My visit was much shorter than I expected, and, aside from a few big cats, there really weren't any of the more exotic animals.

This was our first visit to Palm Beach Zoo. What a pleasurable zoo, small enough to see the entire facility and still have time left in the day. Very clean and designed very nicely. Close, shaded parking. One area of the park is reminiscent of the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza. Nice area for picture taking. All employees we encountered... More

It's a nice zoo, ideal for children. But for adults it's a little uninspiring. The bird show was ok, but some of the other talks lacked energy and a number of people left before they had finished! The food is mega expensive!!!!! The zoo is good value for money, but not not the type of zoo we'd visit again.... It... More
