  • We enjoy going to the zoo and this is a perfect place to go on a whim. It is very entertaining for the kiddos and also interactive. I don't want to forget to say it's free! 
  • Not alot to do anymore. It really used to be a great place to go when I was younger. Used to have rides. It doesn't anymore. It seems to have got small. There's not really alot to do in or around Lafa...  more »
  • For a free zoo Columbian is definitely the best I've been too. The staff are friendly, a lot of animals and the kids always enjoy it. 
  • An amazing, kid and adult friendly zoo with a wide variety of animals and great staff. Small in size, but not in activities. Several zoo chats and interactive programs to join in daily, and the education department offers many camps, classes, and even birthday parties! The best part? Visits are FREE!
  • You wont confuse it with Brookfield or the Indianapolis Zoo, but for a city the size of Lafayette to have a zoo like this is impressive. That its free is even more amazing. A fun place to spend an hour seeing a variety of animals. Highlights are the Wallaby Walk and petting the farm animals.
  • This is a small zoo, but VERY clean and well kept. The employees/volunteers are knowledgeable and friendly. You'll not see anything terribly exotic here....Wallabys, otters, Bald Eagle, etc, still, it's nicely landscaped and maintained. We enjoy visiting here.
  • The Zoo is very small, but for younger children it is perfect. They also have a great playground for the kids to play on and the price is right (FREE). We had a great time spending about 1.5 hours between animals and play area.
  • A lovely little zoo that is free of charge. This was a great way to spend an hour or two with our kids. We all loved the petting zoo! Definitely give this place a look the next time you are in Lafayette.
