“Good zoo for price, will take time to get everything fixed back up”
Review of Roosevelt Park Zoo

Roosevelt Park Zoo
Ranked #2 of 19 things to do in Minot
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Nice to see this zoo, back in action. It definetly took a huge toll of damage from the river. It was also nice to see so many volunteers working on getting the grounds back up to full par. Good work. I would recommend this to any family looking to take your family around. Good variety of animals and reasonably priced

I would recommend planning on staying 3hrs to take everything in and spend the $5.00 to feed the giraffe

The empty enclosures were disappointing to see, but understandable after the damage endured during/after the flood in '11. Most of the animals were far back in their enclosures and so we didnt get to see a lot of them. We were there during the giraffe show though, and they came right up close! It was very neat. The childrens area was also disappointing, as I was expecting more of a "petting zoo" type. I believe we got the most bang for our buck though, the monkeys and lemurs were very entertaining. We went back for more after we toured the whole zoo :)

Great progress has been made in restoring one of the Great Small Zoos in the Nation. I am sure the Zoo will make a full recovery and be better than ever in the near future.

This zoo was devastated by the flood a couple of years ago. It is an inexpensive family experience. The Gibbons were hilarious the day we went. They were vocalizing and performing an intricate dance. We laughed so hard, we cried. There is a train that will take you around the zoo. Parking is free and close by. Refreshments are reasonably priced and there are plenty of benches and tables. Come on out and help this zoo rebuild!

For the most part the Zoo has all the animals back after the 2011 flood and the building are beautiful. They have a nice gift shop, restrooms and soda machines and snack bar as you get farther into the zoo. The only thing not back are the penguins because the area they keep them is still being fixed. The animals are great and everything is kept up very nicely.
It's a nice outing for a family.
