I am a pass holder at Busch Gardens Tampa so I have to temper my opinions as i am spoiled. For less than $10 per person admission, I expected a tiny little zoo. I was in town for a tournament and wanted to kill some time with a two year old and an 8 year old. There were more animals than I thought there would be and it was much more fun. Don't expect an amusement park. Expect to see animals in habitats. It was a great way to kill a few hours. Quaint little train ride, huge koi pond, tigers, lions, and people. Great value in a small town zoo. Tip: pack swim suits and take your little ones to the free splash park next door.

Considering Alexandria, La doesn’t have any significant attractions, the Zoo here is quite nice. Its been around for generations and has always been very popular. If you happen to be in Alexandria and especially if you have children, you really need to stop by this wonderful and entertaining zoo. I highly recommend it.
