    Eh it's ok rather small, but for small children or a few hours, not bad. We prefer the Audubon though  more »

    What a perfect little place! It's still growing, so stay tuned but in the meantime, what a sweet little gem! At only $5, you get a splash pad, cool little playground and some neat animals. For a littl...  more »

    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.

    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.
