First off I really love that this zoo is free! Really nice walking zoo with plenty of trees and shade. Good variety of animals to see. We went in early morning and most were outside their cages and active which is always awesome to see! My kids are older but they have an amazing looking jungle gym for littles. Even right outside the zoo there is this little lake and green space for picnics and fun. Really lovely area of Madison. …

The zoo has made several adjustments for the COVID - 19 virus situation. None of the indoor exhibits are open. Face masks are required even though you are outside the whole time.

Free, beautiful zoo. They just opened due to the virus. They have it set up well to control crowds. Unfortunately buildings are closed, but we still saw a lot of animals and the main food place (and ice cream!) Is open. It's a pretty place and you can't beat free.

My boyfriend and I have gone two years in a row now after our snowboarding trip at Devil's Head. It's a small zoo in a cute park/neighborhood. It's also free but we try to donate anyway. I have not been in the summer but it's on the agenda this summer!
