  • This small zoo is excellent. The day that we went it was fairly empty of people but plenty of animals to see. The price is very reasonable also. The $2 train ride did not have much to see.  more »
  • Yes we visited a zoo in our honeymoon. We love zoos. We visited this zoo thinking we would spend maybe an hour up to an hour an a half tops. We spent over 3 and a half hours walking around a looking a...  more »
  • After hearing about how good this zoo use to be and how downhill it's gone, my expectations were low. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Although it's looking worn, it has what most zoos would be en...  more »

  • A number of exhibits were under construction when we visited so we'll have to go back in a year or so when they reopen. The animals were really active in the morning. More snack stands throughout would be nice so everyone isn't crowding to one area to get refreshments. Also, more benches would be nice for a quick rest on hot summer afternoons.
  • This little zoo is charming. The animals in there are neat but the animals in the neighborhoods around the zoos aren't so great. 8/10, the African animals inside are better than the ones right outside.
  • I love a good zoo, but this place looks neglected from progress. It needs some new aesthetics for sure, but with all of that land they could provide better enclosures for the animals who have to live there.
  • This is a fantastic zoo. It has a great variety of animals and a beautiful tiger. It is a bit out of the way from Baton Rouge, but it is a great visit for young and old alike.
  • I am a member at the Brec Zoo. Worth the price of a membership if you go more that 3 times a year. My only dislike at the zoo is that there are no lions or elephants. Those are always what my 3 year old wants to see. But I do appreciate the care given to the animals and the way the zookeepers take the time to educate us on something new every time they see us. Always willing to take the time to answer questions for my son.
