  • Very good Zoo. Not the biggest, but very cozy. Definitely worth the time to visit. The animals are very well groomed, have someone view. It will be interesting not only for the children but also for adults. Free large parking lot was a pleasant bonus:)

  • I hadn't been to Zoo Boise since it was called the Boise Zoo, maybe 2o years. It seemed to be a little run down and very stinky in a lot of areas. The best part was the butterfly exhibit. I know Zoos ...  more »

  • Cute zoo with a decent amount of animals. Would prefer to see them in larger enclosures since there is so much space. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They need more animals then goats & a lama in the feeding zoo. But it's a reasonable price for what's offered. Love the prices of the feeding and boat ride. Would highly recommend just.
  • Clean zoo. Good variety of exhibits. Lots of shade which helps on hot days. We enjoy going once or twice a year. I don't think it's worth an annual pass though. That's just my family's opinion. Definitely worth going to if you're from out of town though.
  • Very cool little zoo!! For the size it had a decent amount of animals to view. Nice sized enclosures for the animals. Great price too take the family for a little fun. If I'm in Boise again I'll visit the zoo guaranteed.
  • This place is fantastic. Small but very well done. We got year passes 💗
  • Start Wars day was great. My niece loved all the characters walking around. It was a bonus to the great exhibits.
