  • Such a truly wonderful zoo for a city the size of Abilene! Don't miss it! The giraffe exhibit is excellent!  more »
  • We enjoyed strolling around this well planned zoo. The grounds were very pretty and there was quite a variety of animals. It was not crowded and offered several places for seniors to seat and rest.  more »
  • This is worth a stop if passing through Abilene. The only zoo in west Texas! A highlight is the new Giraffe exhibit. My grandchildren always want to go when in town. Their favorites are the lions, mon...  more »

  • The zoo is a lovely place! I have been coming here my whole life and I have always had fun. I brought my children and they are grown. They still come when they can. The renovations are great! A great day for a very reasonable price 💗🐅
  • Love it for being way out here in West Texas this place has alot of exotic animals. Me my wife and son came here multiple times. And we enjoyed it people don't realize they are very lucky to be so close to these animals it really opens up your mind to imagine living in these other countries and having them potentially running around in peoples back yards wild!! Its really neat! And very amazing!! And being a resident here I really appreciate all the hard work and time you guys have devoted in the upkeep and development of this place. You guys are AWESOME! 👍 Tom ^.^
  • This zoo was absolutely wonderful! It was one adult and two kids age 3 and 6. We took a train ride tour of the zoo and that was fun and informative. They have a lot of animals and space for kids to run around. The highlight was feeding the giraffes. A must visit!
  • Gem of a zoo in the middle of west Texas! Affordable, not too spread out, easy for little kids to walk and enjoy. The animals looked well cared for, their enclosures were clean and maintained. We loved the Prarie dogs and feeding the giraffes! The little train ride was fun too (though it is extra). Definitely take the kids if you are in the area!
  • We took our great grandchildren to visit the zoo today. Their excitement was contagious. The cool spots around the zoo were placed perfectly. The breeze off the lake--marvelous. The folks who worked there showed kindness and courtesy to our little group and others, which we witnessed. Great day!!! Way to go zooites!!!
