“Best Free and Overall attraction in Roswell”

Spring River Park and Zoo
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We read the reviews of this place before going and thought it was going to be small and no animals; but they are all wrong! This is a great place to go for adults/ children. They have a bear, mountain lion, foxes, owls, lemurs, reptiles and a bunch of other animals. There were peacocks and chickens running around. Also, free parking! We walked around for at least an hour or so to see all the animals. Bring a lunch and have a picnic too, there are a bunch of tables around. It was a pleasant surprise and one of my favorite places to visit here.

Open all year round although in the summer there is a train you can ride for only .25 and cheap concessions. Where else are there rides for only .25 ? Picnic tables and free parking. Onsite staff are always around and several events are schedued throughout the year. Most animals are collected by NM conservation officers and housed here when they can not be returned

Hot and dusty. Animal enclosures leave much to be desired, in both cleanliness, arrangement and smell.

I think it's a very nice Zoo, and Park. I'm a Zoo Nut I have been to many Zoo's around the counrty, and in Texas. It may not be big as some people think it should be, but their's isn't as good as they think it is. Compaired to the Houston Zoo and Park. So Roswell be happy to have a very good Zoo. Your Park is very Relaxing and Safe, well Austin your a small Town Zoo also, and yours has it's small problems also
