I'm not a fan of viewing wild animals in cages, but when traveling with small children sometimes you just have to do a zoo. Small, easy to do with kids and short attention spans. Try to feed the giraffes.

This zoo is nice. It's smaller than most, I got thru in about 2 and a half hours taking my time. I do feel that the enclosures are too small for some of the animals. Friendly workers.

While not the biggest zoo, I love Reid Park Zoo's friendly staff, knowledgeable keepers, and animals all the same. A wonderful facility well kept with well cared for inhabitants.

A beautiful zoo where you can see that the animals are very well looked after. Lots of animals that are native to the area.

I took my 1.5 year old grand daughter to this zoo yesterday. This was my second visit within a year. I LOVE this zoo - it is just the right size! A perfect morning in a great zoo!

This is a nicely sized zoo with an abundance of wildlife in newer habitats (versus cages). The animals include the typical lions, tigers, and bears (oh, my!), but also include some that make this zoo different - ride a camel, see lemurs, and enjoy interaction...More

A considerably small zoo in comparison to some but there are lots of kinds of animals. It satisfies us, our family and friends as well. We are proud supporters and love our zoo.
