What a great zoo. I wasn’t expecting such a big city zoo in a small town but we were pleasantly surprised. The place was huge with large exhibits, well groomed grounds and every animal imaginable. Admission was only $12.50 each and well worth it. Great experience.

Very well-maintained and beautiful grounds. A great experience for all ages and very educational. We were very pleased with the price and entry procedure.

We thoroughly enjoyed this zoo. They have done a very nice job of setting up the exhibits for both the animals and the people. Staff was friendly and helpful. Due to covid we had to buy the tickets online and chose an arrival time. The whole process was smooth and easy. One of my favorite pieces was feeding the giraffe.

Bring along strollers and carriages appropriate for your kids. There is a lot of walking and I have seen children in their wagons enjoying the zoo without tiring. The entry fees sre a consideration if you are on a budget. Parking is plentiful and free. The Zoo is in the northwest part of Tyler and not far from the Main Postoffice so use the signs to get there or GPS.

best zoo experience we’ve ever had! not so big that it’s overwhelming but not so small that it’s disappointing. We took boys 3,9,11 and all had a wonderful time! Only had 2 hours, we should’ve allowed 3-4 hours. Feeding giraffes was amazing! White tigers amazing. Very few empty habitats, and all were very up close & personal. it wasn’t crowded and was such a nat intimate, quaint zoo experience! Highly recommend!!!! Oh but take water bc it was hard to find and we couldn’t get the vending machines to work!!
