Caldwell Zoo, Tyler
(4.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Caldwell Zoo houses more than 3,400 animals in six distinct habitats. At this 34 ha (85 acre) site, roam around an African savanna filled with lions, zebras, elephants, and giraffes. See native animals of the Americas, such as bison, eagles, and bears from North America, and macaws, giant anteaters, and large rodents from South America. Look for the aquarium that hosts an array of fish, tortoises, and penguins from Africa, and check out the herpetarium--home to snakes, lizards, frogs, and giant tarantulas. Listen to the local parakeets, and feed the free-flying cockatiels a handful of snacks. Put Caldwell Zoo at the forefront of your travel plans using our Tyler travel itinerary planner.

  • This zoo isn't huge, but it's well laid out for a family outing. We have been numerous times and my kids love the way the habitats are set up for maximum view ability. It's also generally very clean a...  more »

  • Considering the size of the Tyler community this zoo is spectacular. A good selection of animals from around the world. The zoo is well kept and the animals appear healthy. Nice presentations by the staff throughout the day. Some major construction underway right now which should add additional features and improvements. We took the family and it was enjoyed by all ages.
  • This place is terrible. The animals live in squalid conditions. The bear looks like it was about to have a heat stroke. The rhinos had absolutely NO WATER. I am disgusted. There was NO zookeepers out tending to the animals. They all looked to be "chilling" and socializing elsewhere. And actually one of their animals escaped today which shows how "responsible" they really are.
  • This place has always been a great zoo. They're doing some construction in the Africa area, which includes the diner. They've got a concession stand on the other side of the zoo for now, but can't recommend the hot dogs.
  • Nice little zoo. Love their giraffe place. Prices aren't bad either. No 5 stars for lack of nice eating place inside. Greasy low quality food in their restaurant.
  • This zoo is small with smaller enclosures so you have a better chance of seeing the animals. My daughter (6) loves this zoo! Very clean and fun!
