Used to visit as a child and it has been improved and keeps making progress. Great for an inexpensive day trip for the family or if you're in the area visiting.

I traveled here with my boys. We seem to find our way to a zoo in every town we visit. Much of the zoo was closed for construction, hopefully it will improve in the future. The train ride was nice, however most of it showed construction. The animals that were there seemed energetic and healthy.

We took our two year old and she loved it! The place is very family oriented. There's even a little play ground in the zoo. Parts of zoo are under construction but there's still plenty to see!

We have been going here for years and the Alex zoo is always doing fun family activities to participate in at the zoo. The animals ate usually always out and active. My kids love it and so do I.

They always have excellent views of the animals, who are well kept. The grounds are clean and their attractions are wonderful.
