We absolutely love the Hattiesburg zoo. The grounds are very clean and the animals look happy. It isn’t very big but it isn’t expensive either. Wonderful for small kids and bring a swim suit for the splash pad!

This is a cute little zoo with a small time feel. Staff were all friendly and the animals were well cared for. It was very hot, and they had plenty of cooling off places for the guest to experience.

Very pleasantly surprised how big the Zoo was, and how many attractions they had. I enjoyed the fountains you can go get into to cool off. I was very impressed.
