A huge improvement over the prison camp like environment I recall from childhood field trips. A nice place to lose a few hours of your time.

The Jacksonville zoo has something for everyone! We totally enjoy ourselves every time we go; my husband especially likes the bird-feeding area.

The Jax Zoo is an excellent outing for family members of all ages. It's a great place to see a wide variety of animals in as close to natural surroundings as possible, and a great place to experience the flowers and fauna of the various time seasons in all their glory. The zoo has been significantly upgraded over the past 20 years in all aspects.

Jacksonville's Zoo has grown by leaps and bounds over the 10 years I have lived here. There is a wide variety of animals showcased in various habitats that are accessible to everyone. We love the elevated walkway with the plains animals, the walk through the Savanna to see the giraffes from an elevated platform (with a chance to feed the giraffes). The train gives a great behind the scenes view of some of the facilities and the new Asian Bamboo Garden is breathtaking.

The Jacksonville zoo is well laid out with beautiful nature preserves and no cages. The gardens are spectacular and worthy of a visit any time of the year.
