  • Abilene Zoo is not a huge zoo by any means but it's big enough! They have been adding exhibits and attractions to keep it modernized. We love our visits and my grandchildren have a blast on the Carous...  more »

  • Our zoo is cute AND cheap AND they are always doing cute, fun, family friendly events. It's a nice thing to do since it's not so huge you spend a whole day there, but big enough that you can at least spend an hour or two. There is plenty of room even when they are super busy to walk around and enjoy the animals. Speaking of animals they are very well taken care of and you can tell. I love our small little zoo even though I have been there hundreds of times and am 28 years old. It's a good place to take kids if they re old enough to be entertained by animals that are usually asleep during he heat of the summer,.
  • Wtf is a zoo without an elephant I had to donate to 6 pos no hippos penguins or otters nothing but broke tired animals means there is no trainers just loosers....
  • Very nice with well planned layout and natural habitats for the animals. Very clean and beautiful landscaping. Enjoyed this zoo very much!
  • I personally prefer this zoo over the Dallas, though many of the reptilian and fish tanks seemed that they had not been cleaned in quite a while. Great zoo, not too big with many different animals! Great place to bring your kids!
  • Came to Abilene for the weekend and made the zoo our last stop before returning home. We loved this zoo! Been to 2 other zoo's (Memphis and Amarillo) and this one was best by far! All the animals were awesome but the giraffe exhibit made it special. We'll be back for sure!
