Swetsville Zoo Reviews & Ratings
Remarkable spot to see artistic ability of Bill Swets! Also a place to take kids, a picnic lunch and enjoy the stream of water! Where else can you find a donation based art museum/ nature walk. Wheel chairs can be used to see most everything. And plenty of old large trees will give a nice shade canopy on the east side of zoo by water. Hurry before they "take paradise and put up a parking lot🎼". Land is up for sale😭
Visited this place as a child with my grandparents and have so many good memories. Today I got to take my boyfriend and he loved seeing all the sculptures. The man who made these sculptures made pieces of art. They are so unique and beautiful in there own way. This place plans to be closing soon due to selling the property. This is an iconic piece of Colorado.
Wonderfully creative and awe-inspiring. Free to see with the possibility for donations if you're willing. Quite a few metal found object sculptures, and the owner/creator is often outside working on projects during the day. You could come here to take a picnic, or just to see these creations. This is worth coming to just to see what he's created. Truly a gem. Recommended.
You know when you go on a road trip and you find those hidden roadside attractions that is Instagram worthy? This is one of them! The Swetsville Zoo is a collection of sculptures made out of junk! I guarantee that you will find one you love with a quick 15 minute walk through the park. Not only is it a fun place, it's peaceful, and a good spot to stretch your legs during a long drive.
This place was so fun! My kids loved it. I'm sad we just now found out about it. Good luck on your future endeavors!
