This is such an excellent zoo. It's much better than some in larger cities in Louisiana. Alexandria is so lucky to have such an excellent facility. Wonderful exhibits, beautiful animals! So well done. I applaud the staff who run this place. I go every chance I get. Great fun for kids and adults alike!

The zoo has added many exhibits over the years and is well-maintained. You would only expect to see some of these exhibits in larger cities.

Enjoyed this place, very clean and lots to look at. My son is 4 and he loved the owls, but plenty to see and be entertained with.

Visiting Alexandria briefly and we decided to pay a flying visit to the zoo. We were both really surprised how good the zoo was with lots of different animals and a pleasant setting. The real bonus was the entrance price just $7.50 for adults -a real bargain for the setting and variety of animals. We really enjoyed a couple of... More

A great zoo to take kids to, plenty of rest areas and visibility for little kids is very good. The paths are fairly easy to navigate as they go back and forth with gradual inclines on nice walkways. Very stroller friendly and even elderly walker friendly in my opinion. Lots of shade and areas to relax.
