  • Recently visited the BR zoo for Boo at the Zoo. A great event for the entire family. The kids dress up in their Halloween costume. There are plenty of activities for the entire family.  more »
  • We make this a biyearly trip with our grandchildren and they love it. We always do the Christmas trip because they put up a great light display and eats for Christmas pleasure too. However, we also do...  more »
  • 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 »

  • After living in Baton Rouge for years and moving away to then move back, I was greatly surprised by the better conditions and revamp that the zoo has had over the past few years. Every single employee was great to talk to and happy to help with anything we needed as well as having a variety of animals and better enclosures. It was a great experience for my family and a first trip for my young daughter who loved seeing everything and interacting with the people working. I will definitely be going back to bring my family again.
  • I love our local zoo. Its more like a park with animals. it is covered with beautiful trees and flowers. I enjoy the zoo's grounds and the animals are a added bonus. With only one way in and out its a great place to bring the kids and let them loose just a little, they love to see the animals. Its very peaceful and the staff is great as well. They have always been very helpful and nice when I have encountered them.
  • We went to see the zoo lights. It was very affordable and great sad not many people were there with their kids. It helps find the zoo and a wonderful experience for the children.
  • They're working with what they've got. It's not the biggest or the fanciest or the newest, but it's nearby, its affordable, and it's a nice size for a couple of hours with the kids. New Orleans zoo may be bigger and better, but here you avoid the huge crushing crowds and the long day of dragging cranky kids around. It's great for last minute plans or a quick visit.
  • The zoo is ok, but small. They were having an issue a little while back with a lot of animals dying. We visit every year or so for brew at the zoo. It is a good location and is good for hosting large events.
