  • Beautiful location especially for a zoo! As others have mentioned, this is not your typical zoo which our family loved. There are various types of rescue animals scattered throughout who all seem to be well loved and taken care of by the park staff. Visit with an open heart and mind, you won't be disappointed!
  • If you're expecting a large zoo, like San Diego or Fort Worth you'll be sorely disappointed. This is a rescue zoo, and it's a good one. They have a pretty good variety, you can feed some of the animals, and they have a mini train ride around the zoo. A really great place for families with small kids.
  • This place is awesome! There are tons of animals and cool habitats, this is all around a great zoo. In addition the peacocks wandering around have awe inspiring feathers and a funny personality.
  • This is a really cool place that has certain animals that have been rescued. I love how they teach you all about the animals and their normal environment. Most importantly they educate on what they do at this zoo and encourage people to donate their time in order to help these animals in need.
  • My family and I try to go to the Austin Zoo as much as is available. The staff is always friendly and I know that my money is going back to caring for the animals. As a desired monkey owner, I find it interesting to read about where each animal came from whether rescued or surrendered. I would recommend anyone in the area to visit the Austin Zoo, 1) to support a local non profit organization and 2) it's perfect for all ages but find it most age appropriate for my 5 year old son and younger children as it's large enough to give the zoo feeling but small enough to feel comfortable with your child being outside of a stroller.
