  • I wouldn’t really call it a zoo. You can definitely tell that the park is older. Some the animals did seem sad to me. The tigers and bears were sequestered in a smaller area and weren’t as active. The...  more »
  • On a hot day, I would go early. We got there shortly after opening and got to see them feeding the animals, and the bears playing. My 7 year old loved it.  more »
  • We visited this zoo as part of a Local Flavor promotion which made it worth it as our first visit. I wouldn’t pay regular price. The small zoo offers a variety of animals including giraffes, bears, ti...  more »

  • We love the Plumpton Zoo. It's great for kids, especially young ones. My daughter was two the first time that we visited, and she loved feeding many of the animals. We bought a membership on our next trip because it's cost effective if you're going more than three times in a year. Feeding the giraffes was $5 for non-member and $3 for members. Definitely go in the morning when many of the animals are getting fed - that is when they are the most active.
  • Great family zoo! All the staff were very nice and friendly. You can feed some of the animals so the kids loved that. It was bigger then I thought and had lots of great animals to see that were all rescued. It was just all around a great experience we will be back soon
  • LOVE THIS PLACE!!! Took my wife there for her birthday and we got to see Frankie and Ringo-love those big boys! We met them when they were just cubs, and now are all grown up. Also got to meet Penny and Potter which was a huge treat for us. I wish they all had more room to run, but completely understand the economics involved. They do a great job with what they have. Heart felt thanks to the staff for taking such wonderful care of everyone!
  • The zoo is so much fun. It is very well maintained, and the animals appear healthy. Wear comfy shoes, and don't forget the sunscreen. I encourage everyone to buy food to feed the animals. It is such fun! Be prepared for a mixture of food dust and animal spit on your hands. A good wash with soap and water will fix that. It is well worth it to have the great memories!
  • Brought my family here. It really is a wonderful little Zoo. It's especially good to know that they rescue animals that have been abused by other agencies or people. It could use a little cleanup of sorts. The men's room was not the greatest. It's kind of like a mom and pop Zoo. A person in our party commented that it was a little pricey but it is good to remember that this place rescues rare animals and the admission price goes to help pay for their care and upkeep.
