Review of Zoo Boise

This zoo has come a log way over the past 20 years. The addition of new animal additions and the events for all ages is wonderful. It is not a large zoo but it is packed with many interesting and educational exhibits.

Some zoos know how to hold animals hostage, but still create an environment that they can live in without being completely tortured. The Boise Zoo is not one of them. You may think you are educating your children, but you are not do so in the correct way. Animals should not be caged and tortured for your amusement. Start today and educate yourself and your children!

I live local and LOVE this zoo especially for Boise! My kids have so much fun there. It's tucked away, but that's part of the charm.

... and we can stay all day." Go early and feed the giraffes. Really! You can feed the giraffes romaine; they put out their impressive tongues and eat right from your hand.

The carousal is a favorite stopping spot when short legs get tired. The zoo is small but impressive. The staff always friendly, helpful and cheerful.

A zoo just great for small children who tire easily trying to do a big zoo. The had a nice play area with slides and zoo animals models kids can sit on.
