The place has deteriorated immensely. The place looks very depressing. I felt sorry for the lion & jaguar because the cages are too small for their sizes. There's no working elevator, so don't even bother going if you're with an elderly. The only good thing is the kids enjoyed feeding the farm animals like the rabbits - but you pay... More

Me and my husband decided to take our kids at ark avilon zoo for the second time since we do not let them join the school field trip. The land area is big but as we walked through the different areas of cages, we observed that there are only few workers maintaining the area. There are still lot of different... More

The place is clean and perfect for kids to explore. Just be careful of the free flying birds on the 2nd floor, particularly the Toucan. They tried to grab me! But no harm done. They immediately took care of the incident. Just funny experience, but maybe scary for the kids. Animal feeding is a great experience for kids also.

Ark Avilon Zoo is a great place to visit, if you're a family with young kids. It's conveniently located in Frontera Verde, Pasig, that is also home to Tiendesitas, for some shopping and dining (so every member of the family won't get bored!) In the zoo, they feature the country's unique wildlife creatures. Your kids will enjoy interacting with all... More

Place is just a so so but ticket was kinda high for a small space of a zoo near Tiendesitas. But kids will definitely enjoy the feeding part.(Again feeding veggie part is also pricey)

It took slightly more than an hour from MOA to this zoo. Upon reaching, it appeared that we were the only visitors. No guide to take us around but it was nice that we could explore the place freely. Very interesting zoo indeed - ground floor, you find lion, meerkat, penguin, etc. - what a mixture of varieties! On the... More

Visited with my sister, hubby and baby. We were the only visitors at that time as it was raining. I pity the big animals as they are unable to move much in the given space - the lion, leopard, bear but it is a relatively good collection for children to see these animals at close. The feeding of rabbits, goats... More

They have some very exotic animals which would be really nice for the kids to see and visit. Go to the second floor where you can actually feed the rabbits / sheep / cows and horses. The tigers and the eages are awesome! I went here to do some photo coverage for a children's birthday party (yes they have a... More
