Surprisingly good for small-town zoo!

Clean and well-kept little zoo. Most interesting are the wolves. And, you can't complain about the price...free!! Alongside a very nice park... good for picnics!

The zoo is free to the public and adjacent to a beautiful park. Pack a lunch and stay the day. The exhibits are close and well kept. There are animals you won't expect to see in a small town zoo. Did I mention it is free?

Heard about a free zoo and decided to check it out. My 3, 8, and 10 year old really enjoyed it! It is small but very well kept. It was really hot bot around 4 must be the animals eating time because the animals started to move around more. The zoo keeper talks happen several times a day and are... More

You only need a 1/2 hour to see the whole zoo. Having said that, its very nice and best of all its FREE. Great for little kids and right next to a pretty park.

We saw all that there was to see in the zoo in about ten minutes. The zoo is free so not much to complain about there. They have what looks to be a expansion plan and is a great spot to stop. There is also playground equipment and a well taken care of park.

I had been first introduced to Oschner Zoo & Park when I was in the 1st grade. I'm now a Freshman in College. This place is special to me and thus is also my location for my graduation party. I love Oschners Zoo.
