We go to this "zoo" free with our other zoo membership because it is on our reciprical list. Based on it being free I would give it 5 stars. But if you have to pay for this one, then it is a 4 due to the size. This is a very, very small zoo. What they do have is great though. You can feed the giraffes on their level by using the bridge that passes over them! This is by far the best attraction. If you have limited time, but want to keep the kids entertained, then you can take your afternoon strolls here. There are free to the public playground areas near the entrance. A lovely experience. Check out their summer-time programs if your kids are animal lovers or future Veterinarians.

We love the Abilene zoo. Our favorite part is feeding the Giraffes. They have a number of larger animals such as elephants and even some hippos. The zoo is small but the kids really enjoy going. Take a picnic lunch and let the kids play at the park right outside the gates!!

This is an good day trip opportunity. The zoo is compact in size and layout and can be completely walked thru in a morning or afternoon. They also have good reciprocals (free usually) and special veteran and school discounts. You can view their website and have information to prepare your visit and a map to decide what order you want to see the exibits.

Ther is an excellent park with playgrounds on the same property and accessible from the same parking for other activities as well.
