  • The girls love going to see the animals. It's one of our favorite school field trips. Don't go on Dollar Day because it's a madhouse. They have many events that are awesome!  more »
  • The weather was beautiful. The animals seemed to like their surroundings. It was a great time for all of us  more »
  • We had a great time. Good sized zoo with a decent selection of animals. Some of the habitats were a little small but it looked like they were doing upgrades as they could so i'm sure it'll only get be...  more »

  • This is a really nice facility. Well laid out, clean, decent food at the kiosks/restaurants. Everyone is helpful and knowledgeable, happy to answer questions. If you live in the state a membership is the way to go. If you do not (just visiting) then any donations go to on site use AND national/international conservation programs.
  • I love our zoo. I feel happy making it the primary place to take my year old son for outings. The staff there are always beaming with their love of the animals and the community. They never stop consistently working on improving the living spaces for the animals. I know some say zoos are animal jails but I firmly feel that everyone employed there only wants the best environment and attention to the conservation of the species housed at the Little Rock Zoo.
  • This wasn't a bad zoo, but there was a lot of construction and a ton of exhibits were closed! But, I understand they're trying to improve things. I do recommend they update their signs, there were several times we were walking around in circles trying to determine where we should be.
  • Highly recommend getting a year pass if having a family because it's a great place to bring kids. Always appreciate staff who show kids snakes or other animals up close. Food truck food can be a bit overpriced, but tasty - can't say the same for the cafeteria food. Kids loved the penguins, but don't get fooled by "penguin parties" held outside the zoo. Trust me, it's no party. Anyway, the zoo is great!!
  • Very nice facility. Well laid out, with great views of animals. The zoo, including public areas, animal enclosures, restrooms are clean. The animals look great, are provided with various forms of enrichment including training, foraging, keeper interactions, "toys" and more. I was very impressed. Hanna (our tour guide) was EXCELLENT- informative, and made the tour fun AND educational. Gold stars for Hanna!! Many of the zoo purchases either go to animal care, facility maintenance or national and international conservation programs. We bought a family membership since we live in the state; if you're "just visiting " donations will help support conservation.
