“Talks by zoo keepers informative and fun”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Small but very well maintained zoo. Lots of space for animals to move around. Good programme of informative talks by zoo keeper. Animals well looked after and housing area clean. Favourite talk was with the black bears - very close contact with zoo keeper.

“Very nice.”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

A lot to see, my only complaint is that the prices are very expensive.
Seems to be well run, clean, animals look healthy.
I always go once a year, they put on a really good bird show and the owl they have well, he is amazing.

“Great bird show”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

The zoo is a nice size for walking. The exhibits are well done and they have a good selection of animals. We went to the live bird show which was very fun and informative. It was great to see a wide variety of birds up close - some I had never seen before. My friend is a member, which is well worth it if you live in the area.

“A fun place”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

One of the nicest zoos I have ever visited. Great for children of all ages. The array of animals and birds and wildlife is varied and the premises are clean and inviting. It's easy to get to (in West Palm Beach) and parking is no problem.
