  • Fun place for kids. Several new attractions coming in 2017. Location isn't the best but never had any problems here. Great memories made here.
  • We were headed home and stopped in Jackson to go to the zoo. It was great. Wonderful staff and amazing enclosures. It was a nice stop if you are in Jackson check it out.
  • The last time I went here, a sick hawk who was on death'a door was with all the other birds. When I enformed a staff member, they blew me off. Many of the animals are in exhibits alone and many of the exhibits are to small. It used to be good but as of my trip in the summer of 2016, this zoo is close to being shut down.
  • My experience is being treated to confederate BS - where they have listed themselves as closed on January 16, 2017 for "Robert E. Lee's Birthday". It is closed for MLK Day, the South still lost, and you just put out that bat signal that this zoo is run by racists, who don't have the decency or American pride to honor Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Decent zoo, kids love work
