“Pleasantly Surprised”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Had a great time and was pleasantly surprised at the variety of animals and the lay out of the exhibits.

It is not a very large zoo but it is very well kept (quality vs quantity). Can easily be done without kids as a 1/2 day trip.

Pricing is extremely reasonable.

Personal Tip: Visiting the zoo on a cloudy or cooler day is better than on a hot day. The animals are more active on cooler days.

“A must go.”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

I have been here three time and every time I find something new. The exhibits are awesome. My favorite place was the reptile house very well set up and displayed. I am looking forward to my next visit.

“would go every week if we could”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

we love this zoo. it is easy enough to get around that you could spend all day or just an hour there hitting the big attractions like Elephants, baby Rhinos & Lions. it can be crowded during the weekends and super hot during the summer. but its Texas.

“Much worth the trip to visit”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

For the cost of entry, this zoo is well worth it. I would advise that parking is at an additional cost. It would be nice to see parking fee as an option online. The exhibits were exceptional. I have visisted the san antonio zoo, the bronx zoo, san antonio zoo and the houston zoo. This zoo ranks amongst the best. The animals looked very healthy. The staff was very helpful. The zoo was clean and did not smell bad. The exhibits were constructed to resemble the natural habitats, which is a plus. At the rear of the zoo there is a small atraction which resembles the wild west, which in itself could have been an attaraction. Reminded me of wild west city, pennsylvania. I would definitely recommend this place to my family and friends.
