4.3/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
Observe animals big and small from various corners of the world at Reid Park Zoo. At just under 10 hectares (24 acres), the zoo doesn't cover a lot of ground, but it makes up for this with the diverse animal life it presents. Tour the four zones here: the adaptation zone with its grizzly bear and giant tortoise, the South America zone with a resident jaguar, the Asian zone with its tiger, and the African animals zone with its lion and giraffe. The zoo caters to children by offering rides on its miniature train and a play zone with water-spraying structures. For a deeper educational experience, check the schedule for zookeeper chats and training demonstrations.
