  • Over the past twenty years I've been fortunate to have visited some of the best zoos in the U.S. When we moved to Little Rock a few years back, I really didn't expect to find the Little Rock Zoo as im...  read more »
  • With our reciprocal membership, we got in for half-price and $1 parking. Regular admission is $14 and parking is $3. The zoo is in decent shape but not a lot of animals and most of the water features ...  read more »
  • I had a great time here. the exhibits were good, and the people manning and showing us around were very nice. The zoo is big with lots of wildlife, and lots of animals. The only complaint I had was th...  read more »
  • Surprisingly nice for its location. Great variety of animals. Impressed by the snack bar , ordered a pizza tasted great. Penguins were a little hard to see . Love the many misting spray stations. Great way to keep cool. Wish the train went around the park, a longer route maybe. Gift shop was nice too.
  • This zoo is awesome. The people in Little Rock are lucky to have such a great zoo. For a town this size this zoo is way above expectations. It's very clean and spacious. The animals have great space and lots are very active in the morning. They have a wide range and manage them in a way for easy viewing. Most animals have way more space here than in most other zoos in the country. I have to say I loved this place.
  • It is not as good as Zoo's found in larger cities for sure, but I would say it is a fun little zoo. The Heifer International exhibit was very cool. I would also suggest you stop by to see the penguin feedings. My two and a half year old loved them.
  • I brought my son here for his birthday two days ago and I also brought him a year ago. Last year I assumed that it was just bad timing and so I thought I would give it another try this year. Bad idea. It's hard to push the stroller on their walkway because it's so torn up. There really isn't much shade so it's scorching hot. You have the option of using the mist stations to cool off but that's only going to burn you quicker. The route is confusing to follow. The worst thing however was the state of the animals. The ones we saw (most exhibits were empty or closed) were not active. They didn't have access to cool themselves off. Not one animal in the entire zoo seemed happy. Not one! There was construction both visits. One year apart. Expensive prices. Don't go!
  • Terribly disappointing!! We took my 3yr old twin granddaughters today, May 20, for their first trip to a zoo. Many exhibits didn't have any animals at all in them and others were under construction. The carousel wasn't working or not open. The bear education area supposedly was to end on May 21st, yet nobody was there either. The bear exhibits only had 1 species of bear and the others were empty. The cafe was extremely expensive, it cost $30 for the 4 of us to eat. The map/brochure even said in at least 2 places to please excuse the construction or areas not accessible to see any animals, but it doesn't say that anywhere before you enter. For $10 per child, $13 per adult and $3 to park I would have taken them somewhere else!
