Very affordable to get in, lots of cool animals. Not the biggest zoo around, but certainly one of the nicest! Only $11 for an adult to get in.

Very nice zoo. Everything was clean and very accessible. The prices were reasonable (even in the gift shop). My 4 year old and I had a blast.

The Virginia Zoological Park was interesting, well organized, packed with educational exhibits and information. The vegetation was lush, beautiful and well maintained. Some of the animals were understandably not extremely happy but were okay. Others were very entertaining: especially the squirrel monkeys, peacock, orangutans, and the really cool red panda!! If you're a photographer, you'll love one of their Rhinoceros Hornbill birds: he or she just loves to get close to the camera and make exotic poses- a little movie star!!! The water jets/fountains provided a very cool escape from the hot day and the beautifully nestled benches in shaded areas did so as well. There is a nice gift shop, lunch area and very conveniently spaced restrooms. The price was very reasonable and the overall package was good value for money. I would definitely recommend this attraction to couples, single persons and families. One little point though: be careful with the photo booth- it was a bit misleading: read the instructions- you wont get all three pictures you take just one- and the quality isn't that great so think twice (wasn't really worth the $3). The reptile display was great!

A bit pricey, but a good place to visit with the family.
