  • Nice, well maintained small zoo. Very walkable for the very young and very old. Perfect to spend about and hour. The Otters are awesome. Inexpensive admission. 
  • We had a Groupon for Zoo. We went thinking that it would take us an hour or two to get through it but it really took closer to 30 minutes. If you have really young kids who need a short outing then I ...  more »

  • 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.
