The 2nd largest zoo in the state of NM. Good outing for children and adults. Well kept and the giraffe is a hoot!

I am from Orlando. So there isn't much to do here at all. I love coming to the zoo. Yes, it might get boring if you go too many times, but I love animals and seeing them in person. I would love to work here.

In fact, probably one of the smallest zoos I've ever visited. But that's okay by me. My view is that they're helping to preserve the species that they have for future generations, and educating those same future generations about the animals.

I've been to this zoo a few times before but its been 5+ years ago. I am SUPER impressed with all the improvements that have been made!!! The animals have a lot of room and all looked very healthy. We even saw an albino peacock!...More

I have been taking my kids and now grandkid there for years. Nice zoo. Dont compare it to some big city zoo, because we aren't a big city. But it is a great place to spend the day with your kids.

Most of the hotels in Clovis are located along Mabry Drive(highway 60/84). The Hampton Inn is technically the closest at 2 long blocks away, but all of the others are close also.

The hours are 9:30 to 3:30 and closed on Monday. Everyone must be out of the park (zoo) by 5:00. There may some adjustment of hours for summer months. JT
