“Class trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

I myself enjoyed the train ride to the different areas and then the children and I would get off to walk the trail.

“Perfect morning outing with the kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

In the Hub city of Mississippi you will find an 11 acre city zoo. This moderate sized but very interesting zoo is staffed by extremely knowledgable and caring keepers and animal specialists. There is growth to this zoo with a new Zoo School that will become the next educational classroom and habitat for some of the creatures. The zoo is complete with a new splash pad, your children and some adults would simply love! (Don't forget your bathing suit and change of clothes.) After you've cooled down, you can go exploring through the continents of South America, Asia, and Africa. Some very different animals live here and some old favorites as well. Not to mention a quaint petting zoo with goats. Don't forget to take a ride in the train and carousel.

“Excellent little zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

This zoo is smaller and has smaller animals in it. Very cheap pricing. Its bigger animals are mainly lions and tigers. My children and I love this zoo.. It even has a new water play area for the children.

“My grandchildren want to go every week...we love it!!!”

Great zoo in a small space. Lots of fun for toddlers and young children. Ride the train and the carousel. Play in the water at the splash pad. Nice animal exhibits and several coming attractions. Help support this zoo...they have been working hard and it shows!!! Plus, there is a nice playground just outside the zoo area.
