  • Such a great zoo! A small zoo with great exhibits. Very clean and we'll laid out. All of the employees were very kind, helpful, & well educated. Such a great activity if you only have a limited amount of free time. You can get through the zoo quickly or take your time and enjoy it for several hours.
  • Cute little zone in the middle of downtown wilmington with capybaras, a monkey house very inexpensive admission and a lot of fun for little children.
  • I remember coming here with my father as a child. It's small but it's so quaint and kids love it! My granddaughter really loved it! The head administrator really took time to explain many different things about the zoo to us. I really appreciated that. He was a nice man.
  • It's a fun local place with very nice staff. Animals are enough to amuse my kids. Great focus on teaching about animals that are endangered.
  • Nice little zoo in Wilmington, Not too many animals, but a nice little selection including a Tiger, Eagle and Sea Otters. Good size for an hour or two with kids.
