  • I was disappointed this time around. I was last there 5 years ago with children I babysat. This time I had my almost 4 year old twins. Need to know: -You can't bring in a cooler, or plastic straws. They supply paper straws. I can respect both rules, but not when they don't respect me. -I ordered food at 12:29, but did not receive my food until 1:24. That's almost an hour for my children to wait to eat (and I'm 32 weeks pregnant, with my snack "confiscated" at the gate/store. I was able to retrieve on departure). -The explanation they gave was that many people ordered the chicken fingers and fries, so they were waiting on them. While giving my order at the window, they could have told me the situation. -The chicken nuggets were small and the oil needed to be changed. -No apologies. -The bathrooms are small, and have not been updated in quite some time. It is loud and overwhelming to potty trainers and infants in need of a diaper change. -The exhibit spaces seem small for some of the animals. I'm comparing to other local zoos. + The splash pad is fun for the kids. + It is not a large Zoo with too much walking, just about right for preschoolers. = BE PREPARED for these little hiccups.
  • I'm a huge fan of smaller Zoos. I assume they treat animals better? I'm rating a 2 start because the staff aren't super friendly. That's a big deal to me.! The zoo had a nice sprinkler water area for little ones to play in. Which I was not expecting. Really cool! They also have a playground outside the zoo. Depending on when you visit it's usually packed with a lot of children who are not being supervised.
  • Really cute little zoo. Kids love the splash pad. I loved that the animals came up close, you got a great view. Everyone seemed I'm good spirits. It is small, but worth it. Not a lot of animals you typically see.
  • It was clean. The animals were able to be viewed easily and seemed to have a decent amount of space. The food was decent but the service was pretty slow. My three year old had a blast in the water area!
  • I LOVE this park. I walk my dog there all the time. It is beautifully maintained, so much so, that I felt compelled to write to the director and tell him what a great job they do! Every time I go, it takes my breath away. There are lots of "regulars," and their dogs, and they are all lovely people. My only complaint is people who visit the park and zoo, on weekends and leave their thrash! Outrageous! Keep this beautiful park beautiful. Pick up after yourself! Enjoy a stroll, sit on the many benches located throughout the park, go to a free concert, etc. This park is the gem of Attleboro!
