The Jackson Zoo used to be a gem in Jackson. When I was a kid there were lions, and tigers, and bears...(like grizzlies and polar bears.) However as time and zoos have changed this zoo hasn't been able to keep up. Funding seems to be the major problem. If you have kids they'll enjoy this park (because honestly kids have a good time looking at any animals and running through this smaller park) The carousel is lovely. You'll also not have to worry about walking over a HUGE park because this zoo is relatively small and makes for a great day trip for toddlers. There won't be crowds and crowds of people to fight unless there is a special event scheduled. Just know ahead of time that you're not going to see elephants and some other animals you'd expect to see at a zoo.
