I have always loved this zoo. It is beautiful and wonderfully kept. I feel it may be a little pricey, but if you go often, you can buy a membership. One of my favorite places to go in Tyler.

This zoo is beautiful. Tall pine trees, beautiful flowers, and amazing animals, including a large anteater and white tigers.

Great day at the zoo with our grandchildren. They had a blast! We pack a bag with snacks and drinks. As long as you do not bring glass they let you bring bags into the zoo.

Amazing zoo especially for a smaller city. My family loved getting to hand feed giraffes. It is a very well done zoo and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend it if you’re in tyler.

Never would have thought a zoo this nice was in this town. We have came here numerous times. It is a nice zoo, clean, lots of animals and great to have lunch and watch the giraffes.

I wasn’t expecting such a great zoo to be in Tyler. I would highly recommend any families visiting the area to check it out.

I've grown up going to Caldwell Zoo, even on field trips as a small child and to see it grow over the years has been amazing. The people that work there are experts and very profesional. So many things to do!

Yes you can. They sell trays with lettuce that they eat out of your hand.
