“Abilene Zoo --- a multi-generational fun day for all!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

Don't miss the giraffe bridge! Also the snakes are fantastic! Abilene is really hot in the summer so don't forget your hat & sunscreen! A fun day for two generations & a younger generation that phoned in for a chat!

“Nice zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

As zoo fans who have visited zoos in multiple states, this medium-sized zoo has lots of animal varieties and great vantage points for its white tiger, birds, flamingos, snakes, lions, giraffes and other animals. I'd recommend trying to go when it's not too hot or early in the morning because not only will the animals be more active, but you'll enjoy your trip a lot more.
Our family of four were members while we lived in Abilene for 20 months and we visited the zoo or playground at least once a month, if not more often.
The zoo area also has a train ride, the aforementioned large playground, huge walking/bike trail that borders a scenic large lake and separate dog parks for large and small canines.

“Great small town zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

For a small town zoo, the Abilene Zoo is very entertaining and informative. The new areas are great and we're looking forward to the next addition.

I have always loved going to the zoo, the snakes are scary to me, but I enjoy. The camels are my fav.
