  • The Little Rock Zoo is unimpressive, with the one exception being the penguin exhibit! It’s fun for all ages. There are a cafe and train that help make the visit more tolerable. Otherwise, I think the...  more »

  • We always visit the zoo in the place we vacation. This was no exception, but it was especially cold and most of the animals were not out, however, we had a lot of one on one time with the zookeepers o...  more »

  • A wonderful place for a five year old to run and play. If you're like me, you'll find it worth your while to invest in a membership, which will pay for itself typically in the first three or four visits. Be warned, winter hours are only up til 4:00PM. At present (end of March) they are back to the slightly more reasonable 5:00PM. Much more could be said (too much for phone entry).
  • I Love this zoo because of all the newer, more environmentally correct enclosures that have been built 4 each animal type. Especially love and adore the penguin enclosure. Lets U get super up close and personal with them and apparently they love it as well. They are drawn 2 their, "glass window" into our world as we are drawn 2 the same into theirs. Mostly clean zoo. Animals all look as happy as they could be in captivity. Don't see any signs of mistreatment or of being malnourished in any way. The price has gone up over the years, but I can see & understand the need 2 help get these animals into more natural environments as they have built/still are building. But, as a grandparent of 4, the annual price tag is awesome. Pays more than for itself in 2 visits a year. So I definately suggest joining the member's of the Little Rock Zoo, 2 reap all the extra m, "rewards" offered 2 it's members throughout the year.
  • Let me start by saying that I would never give a zoo a 5 star, there are just too many variables. However, this place was great. We didn't realize how big it was and spent 4 hours here, could have spent another hour or two but our toddler was getting cranky. The weather was nice and the animals were out and moving. The Arkansas Heratige Farm are was great and our toddler loved the goats and riding the train. The food was also some if the best I have ever had in a zoo but was on par with concessions at a large sporting event. This place is a must visit if you live near Little Rock or are visiting.
  • Pleasant experience but to expense at the time. The bears were in hibernation and there were no giraffes. I liked it when you didn't have to pay separate for train and carousel. Many children would love to visit zoo but the price for a family is hard on the pocketbook
  • Most of the animals were actually out in their exhibits today unlike many of our previous visits. Staff are always knowledgeable about the animals and ready to answer questions. Bonus is the two play areas that drain any remaining energy that the kids have. 😀
