What a neat little zoo! There was a good variety of animals. I especially enjoyed the bird enclosure. Admission is inexpensive and about an hour was adequate to look around. The enclosures are basically cages, but they are large and you can see the effort...More

I really like this zoo. Sometimes, it's hard to find inexpensive things to do when traveling, but this is right up my alley because it cost $2.50 a person. They have interesting animals that look well taken care of, and the park is always clean....More

Great little zoo with options to feed the ducks/turtles, see New Mexico wildlife along with exotic animals, a park to picnic in, and a playground for the kids. Surrounded by a fence, parents can let their children roam free and not worry about them. Very...More

I was pleasantly surprised when we first moved here. The zoo is very well kept, the animals well cared for and with the new monkey exhibit, it's a perfect little zoo. We love coming here in the summer to walk around under the trees. It's...More

The prices are great for the size of this zoo, however I feel like the city should foot the entry fee on this place. The sidewalks are in terrible condition if you are bringing a stroller. There are hardly any animals even in the zoo....More

We had some time to kill and figured for $2.50 we couldn't go wrong and we very pleased to make the detour. Much larger than expected and a great selection of animals that you could get up close to. What is amazing is that their...More

Loved that all the animals were out and it was easy to find. Definitely needs some updates but it was nicely set up. Wish the souvenir shop had its name on shot glasses and magnets. Only had it on t-shirts and hats. But I would...More
