  • It is rather run down and the environments don't look very comfortable or up to date. Everything from food to gift shop was too pricey.  more »

  • We loved it! This was a second generation trip for us. I took my granddaughters yesterday, and they had a wonderful time. The littlest one liked the zebra because her name begins with "z." The older one enjoyed the experience of being up close and personal with the giraffe. I've taken them to other, larger zoos, but this one is just the right size to not be overwhelming. Thank you for keeping it in the family and personal!
  • EDIT: My family and I visited Wilmington for a couple days this week for spring break. We had never been to Tregembo Animal Park, and we really enjoyed ourselves. The animals were very close to us. We were just feet away from alligators and big cats! The children had a blast talking to the parrots, handfeeding the goats, and walking through the herpetarium. I originally gave the zoo 4 stars because of how much fun we had. I had my concerns, though. Immediately I noticed the cages for the birds and monkeys were concrete. Then we saw the black leopard, Shadow, who was pacing anxiously in his pen. The end of his tail was pink, and hairless, which was concerning. At the turtle pond there were gross conditions, and a turtle who looked sick, turned of its side. The giraffe seemed to have a few scars or marks on its chest and legs. Almost all of the herd animals were alone, which I'm sure was pretty lonely. The wild hog pen was a disgusting muddy mess. I know they are pigs, but there was only one spot in the pen that had somewhat dry grass, and that is where they were laying. I had a couple other issues, but despite all of this, we enjoyed our time. We even spent some money at the gift shop, which had LOTS of beautiful figurines, and ocean themed treasures. After I we returned home, I did a little digging because of my concerns. I am very disappointed to read about the cruelty this zoo has been accused of, and the fact that two bears were removed as a result. As an animal rights supporter, I will continue to look into this issue and see if there is anything I can do to make sure these animals are getting the care they need. Thanks for reading. I hope my review is helpful for anyone.
  • We had a great time. Wide variety of animals and not crowded money well spent. Great interactions with animals and feeding. Also give information about each animal
  • I loved it. From the outside I thought that it was going to be a waste of time, but when I got in I was very surprised I saw so many animals and it was up close and personal, the animals seemed to be well kept and interacted with people. I can't wait to visit again and this time I will bringing my kids.
  • There are a lot of animals. The cages are not. Large like the asheboro zoo. The peacocks walk around which is cool and a nice experience.
