  • Undoubtedly the cleanest zoo my family's visited. Staff was very informative and excellent interacting with our 9 year old son, who in turn spent more time in the petting zoo areas. Overall a very enjoyable experience with an immaculate facility, very well cared for animals, and plenty of activities and opportunities for photos. There is even a fairly new, 4 story rope obstacle course that looked fun but the prices seemed a bit unreasonable; maybe next time.
  • I bring my daughter here every year on her birthday. It is better and better every year. I have been coming her since I was a kid and my mother came when she was little. Very friendly beautiful place. I love it!
  • Went to the zoo last Saturday before Easter to celebrate my son birthday.. It was an epic time.. The kids really enjoyed themselves and I also did too. The animals have been well kept. The train ride was a thrill especially with my son he loves train.. We will be returning very soon.. Keep up the good work hattiesburg zoo👌👍
  • Reader-friendly labels and signs. Helpful and knowledgeable workers. Easy to navigate. Wheelchair friendly. Clean. Great place to spend some time in Hattiesburg.
  • The Hattiesburg zoo is not the one you remember! The zoo has breathed a new life into itself. They have put a tremendous amount of work into making it a special experience. It now offers, of course, animals, but also a ropes course, an insect themed play area, a bounce house, train rides, and merry go round. The addition of a new refreshment grill, seating area, and splash pad, add to the feeling of vibrant excitement. This place provides a much needed low cost option for family fun in the area.
