  • Update on 1-3-22: I went back when it wasn't so crowded (you were right; winter break was the reason). The animals were very active and I was able to see more of them this time. The zoo staff gives informational talks about the animals outside their enclosure which is a nice touch. I had a very pleasant experience. I will be back again 12-27-21:It's crowded. Kinda small. Monkeys were far away on their island so couldn't see them too well. The tiger was out so I got to see him walk by a few times. The birds and reptiles were plentiful and colorful so that was fun to see. There's a splash pad and playground for kids to play on so that was cool. It's was an OK zoo.
  • Had the best day there! Saw so many animals. My favs were the Koalas and tiger! We had lunch there as well. Best burgers ever! Friendly staff. So much to see! A definite for the kids. Will definitely go back next time I'm in Florida.
  • So awesome! Definitely the best zoo we’ve been to in Florida thus far. Being New Yorkers, we visit Jupiter and Singer Island a couple times a year. We’re always up for new adventures that aren’t too far away. This was an excellent zoo! We had a blast :)
  • The grounds are well maintained and the scenery is gorgeous. We went on a Monday afternoon and it was very peaceful. I grew up going to this zoo and I'm amazed at how well it's been taken care of. Our family had a wonderful experience and we look forward to our next visit when the weather is warmer so that our daughter can play in the fountain.
  • I’ve been to many zoos,including a few internationally. This zoo has the most natural and architecturally interesting feel from any other zoos I’ve ever been to! Nothing felt artificial or oppressive. Every animal seemed to be at ease and well cared for. The otters were so happy and active and the sloth (a personal favorite) was completely at ease in their “bed” taking their mid day nap. The food prices were on par with any fast service restaurant. The alcohol and sodas were a bit high, but that’s expected with any attraction style place. The ADA accessibility was excellent as well, even on the unpaved trails, I was able to easily navigate the surface on a manual wheelchair without assistance. One day I hope to do an “encounter” when they don’t demand wearing a mask
