  • A smaller zoo with animals more likely to live in this region. Very much enjoyed hiking around it with my great nephew and looking at the animals. The carousel is amazing! 
  • This zoo is a gem! I absolutely love it and it's very walkable for young and old alike. I do wish they still had the goats where you could go inside the "pen" with them and pet and feed them . . but o...  read more »
  • Cute little zoo, loved the animals and how you could get close to the enclosures and really see the animals close up, unlike some other zoos where you have to view from behind 2-3 fences. 
  • Way too high of admission. Paid to pretty much take a walk and let our kids play at a park for 30min. Out of the whole zoo only saw about 5 animals. Doing work on too many exhibits so the animals were not present. Not very much to see, not very many animals. The exhibits are nice. And zoo is kept very clean. The zoo itself is very nice.
  • Very small zoo. We were disappointed. Literally took about 30 minutes to walk through it. Quite expensive ($10/adult and $7/kid). The Como zoo in Minneapolis is bigger (and free, but suggested donation of $3 /adult $2/child). This is what they should charge. Winnipeg zoo is about 10 times bigger, about 3-4 hours to walk through and $20/adult or $10 per child. Much better value.
  • Fun zoo for a first time trip; red pandas are always fun to see. Nothing compared to the San Diego Zoo, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, or Denver Zoo. Came here for the Pokemon Go event and was sadly disappointed by how small the facility was.
  • Love the zoo! Such a fun, relaxing family space. I wish the city would have passed that building plan a couple years ago to expand the zoo and add restaurants and everything to the zoo but they didn't pass that. Stupid people. They wouldn't add a .5% sales tax to build it which would have greatly helped our city and brought much tourism to city. Regardless I love the zoo. Such a pretty place they've made it. They should expand it to the other side of the bridge!
  • It's a small cozy zoo. What do you expect? Admission is a bit high and they kind of shame you to donate an extra dollar when you pay. Zoo staff were great inside
