“Sweet little zoo”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

Have taken my children to this little zoo for many years. Always clean, and pleasant place. The animals are always able to be seen and very informative. They have various programs during the summer and the summer camp rocks!

“"Secret Zoo"”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This is a great hidden gem in Athens. Is located in a pretty section of Athens, with huge trees to surround the park. Besides bears they have beavers, bald eagles, owls and various other animals. Very well done!

“Nature and animals”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Nice little indigenous zoo with bears, owls, gaters, etc from the region. The animals all looked happy and relaxed living in the local woods. And a community that can keep this kind of zoo clean and free is to be applauded!

“Cool little place”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

It's hard to find if you don't know exactly where you're going. We stopped and asked a park goer! But, it was a lot of fun. We got several pictures. It's small, doesn't take long, but the bears were my favorite!

“Small but worth a stroll”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

Tucked deep in a neighborhood, you would not anticipate seeing wild life, but secured. A couple of nice paths and interesting Georgia native fauna. Nice for a solitary walk or with the children and the fact that it's free is a great treat.
