  • No proper maintenance done. No clear directions which way to proceed. May be good for children but mismanagement is obvious there 
  • Nice zoo , take your precautions with sun and light especially with kids Its not bad Don't go during peak temperature hours , kids will feel too hot and animals will be sleepy 
  • Riyadh Zoo is good place to take your kids over the weekend to spend half day. Kids are good and can be completed within 2-3 hours.
