My favorite zoo I think. I really like all the fish in the various exhibits. The hippo exhibit is so fun to watch. The zoo employees are super friendly and they do a tremendous job keeping it clean. The bird exhibit where you can feed them sugar water is a great time for photos with your group. Great job. Free parking too!
My family and I had a great day at the zoo. Here at the San Antonio zoo they have a lot of active and we'll cared for animals. My favourite exhibit was the reptiles. We also had a chance to speak with one of the park associates and he gave us some very positive feed back and answered all of our questions. Over all it was a fantastic experience.
We love this zoo. I can come here with my 3 year old twins for an hour or stay for the day. They know their way around, usually want to head straight for the hippopotamus and the giraffes, and we all really enjoy the special family events (like ZooBoo). Seriously, we love this place so much I want The boys to go to the zoo school next year! Highly recommend getting the membership and enjoying the train ride whenever you can. ❤
Fun learning experience. There is a toddler area and a musical area for kids with sand and a stream to have a little beach experience. The kids really enjoyed it. The petting zoo was nice too still glad they kept it! Not much has changed over the years. My son loves the train ride after. It's perfect to let them know we're leaving. I give it stars for giving the kids exercise, knowledge, lots of places to rest, if it was worth the money, if us as parents had a great time, and the food. Since I did not try the food I cannot give it five stars.
This is a really fabulous zoo, and they are doing great work. Many of the exhibits are gorgeous. Most of the staff we talked to were friendly. The Beastro Cafe was tasty and clean. I'm docking one star only because several of the cat exhibits really did seem much too small for the species and had no noticeable enrichment (though we might have been on an off day).
