  • If you are in the West Palm Beach area and want a nice quite activity to do this great is a great thing to do with the family. It is a smaller zoo, so it works better for families with smaller childre...  more »
  • We arrived at this zoo with about 45 minutes to close (with a 3 and 5 year old). We weren't sure we'd have enough time to see everything, but we did! It wasn't busy, so it gave us time to walk though ...  more »
  • We had such a great time. Lovely setting, great animals and easy to get around. Zoo keepers were very kind.  more »

  • The exhibits are nicely laid out and the animals are pretty visible for the most part. I was not too pleased with the cafe area. Upon first observation, there's a window you can order from and then outdoor covered seating and a big room with glass windows and tables. The gal who took our order seemed very unhappy to be there and very unhelpful. Once we got our food and headed inside, we were turned away as the indoor area is a separate sit-down restaurant. This was not clear or obvious at all. The room was empty and just looked like indoor seating. That was irritating. But the burger was pretty good.
  • This zoo is a must go to spot in west Palm Beach , very friendly staff ,fun for the kids ,also offers bug spray stations and has a wet zone for the kids or adults ... It is very clean and beautiful. The animals are very easy to see and I'll share a few pics , also beware you will see tons of wild lizards and iguanas running around ..Don't miss this place if you visit or live here ...and the food in the park is very reasonable and lots of choice for all ..
  • Although there are larger zoo's this is a gem !! Aside from fabulous dollar value it's non-mega size allows parents to relax and enjoy themselves as well. Hale the non-mega and what used to be known as Dreher Park Zoo. My kids and I ALWAYS had a GREAT day at this zoo/park/conservatory both before and after the re-do. Go have some fun there !!!! Monkeying around there doesn't mean your a Cheetah !!
  • Small zoo, but they used space really well. There is plenty to see. I was dissappointed they did not have elephants or giraffes, but they just don't have enough land. Maybe a little expensive, but I am from a city with a world class zoo which is free so I'm a bit spoiled. There are coupons floating around at tourist information spots where tourist pamphlets are distributed which are good for $2 off up to four admissions. Overall a good time.
  • This is a great zoo with lots of fun things to do for the kids! I highly recommend it
