“Our trip to the zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

I took my grandchildren-ages 12 & 4 to the Zoo and they both loved it!! It is not a very big zoo but it sure has some great animals and birds to see. They have lions, tigers and bears Oh my.. as well as monkeys, snakes, and an assortment of birds. The boys enjoyed feeding the giraffes, an experience I sure they will not soon forget!

“Best Family Value in Texas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Of all the attractions in Abilene, the Zoo is one I have visited the most. Although it is small, and you can spend less than two hours seeing all it has to offer - it is still one of the best values in town and offers some of the best photography options in the area (whether you are just learning to take photos, or you happen to be a seasoned pro). It is the number one place I take family visiting from out of town/state.

“Small but excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

In the last few years, they have added some great new exhibits. Their emphasis is on local animals and animals in similar environments around the world. It is relatively inexpensive and is a great way to spend an hour or two or three (depending on how much of an animal lover you are).

“Small zoo, but a great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

I've been to a number of zoo's both small and well-renowned. The Abilene zoo is absolutely marvelous for families and adults. The variety of animals and the ability to interact with them is wonderful since there are not big lines. Love the Giraffe bridge and feeding them. They also had a nice summer concert series.
