I hear that the place was great before, but still recovering from hurricane Harvey. I loved the jaguar!. He's behind glass but very playful. Also nice Peacocks and monkeys.

Brought my 4yr old and older teen. We had a blast. Not to big but bit to small perfect. My daughter and teen loved feeding the animals the most. My favorite was the bird sanctuary. It had the biggest seagull I have ever seen!

This was a nice surprise. They brought out animals to pet. The lion and tiger exhibit was cool. The bird exhibit was creepy (in a good way) but the kids loved it. Nice little zoo! Would go again.

Stopped by here on a hot day, and really enjoyed the shade! The zoo is small, but you're right up on top of the exhibits, which is great with the big cats. The kids got a kick out of a raccoon who'd gotten into the...More

Im glad Victoria has a Zoo. I arrived there in time today to see them feed the 2 Lions (sisters). They were gorgeous animals and somewhat intimidating (as an adult i now understand their power). The workers who put on the show were nice and...More

We recently became members and have been going every week this summer. It's such a nice little zoo for little ones, especially with the train rides offered on the weekends. I have two kids under the age of five and they have a blast each...More
