My parents and nephew were in town visiting and there isn't a whole lot to see in Alexandria so I decided to take them to the zoo. Didn't expect much but it was definitely worth our while. It's a good size zoo, not overwhelming at all. They even had Lions!

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.
