I had my God children for the summer and took them here because they had never been to a zoo. It is technically a sanctuary but there is plenty of variety here. Austin is not a big city and the zoo is on the outskirts of town. The tigers were the boys favorite and the turtles were mine. The peacocks raoming around kept the 3 year old occupied and chasing the 3 year old kept the 10 year old occupied. We had a great lunch at the picnic area and enjoyed the story time. The gift shop has plenty little hands to grab and plenty for big kids to ooh and ahh over. If you have time and the weather is nice, you should stop by. You can take your time and stroll through the whole facility in about 3 hours. Don't miss out on the train. If you forget your stroller or need one they've got you covered.
