  • Riyadh zoo is an average zoo. It has a limited number and range of animals. Many of the enclosures are empty. However the place is clean and well maintained however don't expect to spend more than a couple of hours visiting the place as you will become bored after that. The zoo is in the Malaz area of Riyadh and is easily accessible. It has its own parking facilities and most days you will easily find empty parking spaces. The zoo closes at around 6pm so make sure you arrive at the zoo no later than 4pm. The entrance fee is very reasonable with entrance charges starting at 10 riyals for adults and 5 riyals for children.
  • Most important place we can visit in Riyadh several times. Very well arranged zoo which I gone till now. entry fees of 10 riyal for adult and 5 riyal for children, enjoy your trip with family here.. no doubt all that here what u need..
  • Really a great place for family outing in Riyadh. The zoo is very well maintained. Train ride for kids is good too. Need not carry any food items along, there are many fast food outlets. Better drop in soon to enjoy the most..
  • Clean and green environment, lots of animals of different species. Wonderful place to spend weekend.
  • Good place for a weekend activity. Entrance fee is SR. 10 for adults & SR. 5 for children. Closes at Maghreb prayer.
