  • The zoo keeps getting better and better every year! I have been visiting it annually for years with grandkids and my 13 year old grand daughter pooh poohed the idea recently but we made her go and she...  more »
  • Went for Holiday Nights event and had a great time. Very nice event, the zoo staff did a great job. Returned on Sunday because it was the only thing open before 12 pm, and glad we did. Cute little zoo...  more »

  • We love going to the zoo! Red River Zoo is always fun to go to. We like going to events they put on and it's fun to walk around and enjoy all of the animals and exhibits. If you haven't gone yet I would definitely recommended going! Bring the kids! They'll have fun feeding the animals and also learning about them as well. Follow them on Facebook and you can keep up-to-date on the happenings at the zoo!
  • A great zoo! The exhibits are well cared for and they regularly have fun activities for families all year round. My family goes there multiple times throughout the year. A great place for families to spend a couple of hours.
  • We had my (our) son Daxton's birthday here on a Saturday afternoon. The initial contact regarding having the birthday there, was met with professional and happy staff. I dealt mostly with Mason, who was always available to answer my bazillion questions ha! I was able to bring my own food, the zoo had a wonderful cake as part of there package. As well as punch,cups,plates,forks,napkins and table covers! Certainly saves time having to get all of that n set up! The kids had unlimited carousel rides, the opportunity to have a zoo docent show them 2 critters up close(a turtle and blue tongued skank)while giving them some education on each and allowing them to ask questions too! Also, the birthday included zoo admission, so the kids were able to wonder around and see some of our cold weather animals:) It was a great experience. No complaints whatsoever!
  • This was actually a surprisingly nice zoo. I didn't know what to expect with it being in the city. It is clean. There is some nice artwork and a fair variety of animals.
  • The red river zoo is a nice place to go, but the animal selection is limited. I was hoping to see some big cat exhibits like lions or tigers. The main attraction was the red panda, which wasn't quite as exciting. Also, the wolves were a cool exhibit, but they were not very active, which wasn't that great. I'd like to set them at dusk when they're active, or see them while the staff feeds them, if they do that during business hours.
