“Nice for a suburb zoo”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Its not large but it is nice and can be walked through quickly. All animals have been native to the area at some point. So you won't be seeing lions or Zebra or anything like that. It closes at 5 each day but is open on holidays.

“Fun at the Park/ Zoo”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

I must say that Phillips Park has really changed since I was a child. It was nice to visit. The park is clean and not crowded. The sunken garden is beautiful. It is a great place to take kids. You can get through the zoo part in about hour or less. I would recommend taking your time and enjoying everything the park has to offer.

Great place to go with kids. Best part is it's free! You can get some nice pictures there in the flower gardens too.
