“Nice zoo”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

This zoo isn't huge- you can do the whole thing in a couple of hours. I love nearby so we go pretty regular. The only thing you should know before going- you have to buy train tickets and carousel tickets at the front gate, so if you know you want to ride those, go ahead and buy them when you purchase your admission. They also have a splash pad in the summer that my kids just love.

“Very Nice zoo !”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Nice zoo,like others said its not very large but well maintained and staffed. Not a main attraction but a nice stop over when you have a little extra time.

The area around the zoo can be a bit urban,I was able to fend off a car jacking with my Glock 23 and quick action. I cant hold the zoo liable for thugs in the area but it did feel like a scene from New Jack City !

“Great place for families”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

The Hattiesburg Zoo is always growing and expanding. A wonderful experience for all. Very well kept and clean. Summer camp options are awesome for campers. Education is exceptional at the zoo by all personnel. They also have grand events during the year at Halloween and Christmas. And lots of other occasions. Fun! Fun! Fun!

“Small but very nice”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

A very small but very worth the 5$ per person charge as it is very well mantain and teh animals look clean, well feed and happy (As happy as one can be living in a zoo!) We made a pit stop on our way to New orleans and kill about two hours. I would say don't pay for the train not worth the extra 2$.

“Zoo visit”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The zoo is small but well planned and fun to visit. They have a train you can ride. Displays are clean and animals well cared for. Also there is a water pad where kids can play. My grandchildren love to go to the zoo.
