This zoo is family friendly...but NOT stroller friendly. You walk over lots of rocks and thick sand. This zoo is ok for people who can walk a lot! You could not get a wheelchair thru here. I recommend... read more »
As you can tell from my review list I enjoy finding small zoos as there are truly some gems out there when you search and you do have to search for this one. The actual zoo grounds are nice as it is i... read more »
We took our two grandkids to this little zoo as a last minute thought. This was our first visit and really didn't know what to expect. There is very little signage for directions, but using our NAV wa... read more »
First off I am not an anti zoo person nor am I writing a false review like it claims on the website. Unfortunately the zoo is not what you'd expect.. We waited about 15 minutes to get into the zoo, (we could've just walked straight through honestly) and the price is different on the website than when you actually get there. The paths are run down, the cages are small and the fences are unstable. It seems like the animals could escape easily and there were Guineas, peacocks and birds roaming around freely.. Even though there was a sign saying the Guineas could bite. The cost is too high considering the quality of the zoo but for the animals' sake I would return to give more money. This would be better off closing down and becoming just private property. The animals don't seem abused but also do not seem to be properly taken care of. I gave this zoo the benefit of the doubt but was disappointed.
This zoo is amazing it is so nice and I love the animals! The animals are very friendly and come right up to you! They differ from typical zoos where all the animals are asleep but here the zoo was so alive! They have a rare white tiger. The most adorable little petting zoo with very friendly goats sheep and a llama. The little billy goats are so adorable! They're bathroom is surprisingly clean and the staff are so friendly and helpful! Don't confuse with the Austin zoo! This zoo is the best I definitely recommend don't miss the zebras!
I can't give a rating on the zoo it's self because we never got to get that far. This was one of our family's random finds on the way home from Austin and thought our 4 year old would love it. We walked into the office and stood around for 45 minutes just waiting on some type of staff to walk in to help us. There were 3 or so school buses from local schools so I know there had to be more then one staff member working for safety reasons with a large number of elementary school kids. I have never been more disappointed than my experience with this zoo. I absolutely love the smaller zoos/wildlife parks and had high hopes for this one. But after waiting that long and having to break a little girls heart because we had to leave I don't see myself going out of my way for this place again. There should ALWAYS be someone in the office. It's a shame too, this place has the potential.
My family and I all love this low key zoo, the animals are well taken care of and there were so many baby animals, which means the animals are happy and healthy if they are breeding.
I wanted to give it no stars, but that is not an option. Bought a Groupon...thought it would be a good experience...was wrong. We were the only people at the "zoo". I had to put it in quotes. I have been to real zoo's and by real I mean the National Zoo in Washington D.C. and this was not even close. It looked like someone pet collection. There were birds everywhere. The thing that bothered me the most...it was a realllly hot day (close to 100 degrees) and the pigs had no water..NONE it was dry as a bone. I wanted to report it, but did not know who to call. I felt awful for the animals because it didn't seem like they were being cared for properly. I didn't check the other animal cages, but I did see a lot of cages that looked too small for the animals. It made me really sad. I will never go back.
