  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • It's not bad and you can enjoy a couple hours here. There's not a ton of exotic animals or anything. The place is well kept as far as cleanliness goes and the staff seem nice. Everything else is great. The membership can be used at many other zoos to get in for free or a discount. Prices are $7.75 for children 2-14, $9.75 for adults, $8.75 for seniors (60+), and carousel rides are $2.00. A basic single person membership is 45$ and a basic family membership is $65.
  • We visited for their Christmas season special. Loved it! Our daughter is just about 2 1/2 had a great time seeing, feeding the animals and also enjoyed the carousel and fire they had going.
  • A great place to spend an afternoon with kids. We love going and my grandchildren especially enjoy being "hands on" with the goats and feeding the animals that are allowed to be fed. Lots to look at and you can also enjoy a bite while sitting at a picnic table. The new areas are beautiful and very kid friendly. Also, at the end of our time at the zoo, we all enjoy the beautiful carousel. Great for families with younger children who don't want to travel a long distance to see some unique and familiar animals.
  • This Zoo is one of the most amazing places in Fargo. I highly suggest bringing young kids here along with adults as well. It offers an amazing experience for all ages from infants to the elderly. It is also relitivly cheap to go to as well.
