Caldwell Zoo Reviews & Ratings
Well worth getting the membership. We now go at least twice a month. Great classes offered and the kids love feeding the birds($1 per stick). Bring quarters if you want to feed the fish(and ducks). I wish the cafe had a better selection though. We'd love to see more healthy options in the future. I just bought a burger patty because I have a limited diet and it came covered in some kind of sauce plus American cheese(can you really call that cheese though?). Also I'm not even sure if it's is real meat because it didn't taste like it. We did love the pickle snow cones in the Summer though.
Caldwell Zoo is a real gem to have here in Tyler. It isn't quite a big city zoo, but nobody expects it to be. They keep it clean and inviting. The kids always have a good time and its a great reason to get them outdoors. A year membership is very reasonable and if you bring your card to other zoos they will often give you a discount.
Very family friendly! Feeding camel cost $5 which was the most I have ever paid for 3 pieces of lettuce but the experience was worth it. Feeding the birds was less expensive at $1. Side note Texas citizens you ROCK every place I went everyone was so nice! We didn’t bring cash only card someone gave us a dollar to feed the birds. My little boy cannot thank you enough!
Man I like the this zoo. The prices were not bad roughly around $15 per adult and $12 per child. They sell food ice cream and the prices were not that bad large ice cream for $4. It did have a lot of animals to see. There was another section where you can pet the animals. Another section where you can throw food at them (you got to pay a quarter to feed the fish). It had a habitat for penguin snakes and birds. I really highly recommend you come see the zoo. just be warned I want when it was really hot so really dressed for the occasion it's not a terrible long walk. The bathrooms are clean.
This time of year is the best time to take the kids. Boo at the Zoo is probably the most fun you'll have. Great for adults and children alike, free candy and spooky decorations. Do yourself a favor and check it out for yourself.
