Ideal for a few hours of wandering through the animals with younger children as the actual size and layout of the property is not huge. There are many spots to let the little ones munch on a smack as they wander from animal to animal....More

It was a hot afternoon so some of the bigger animals were staying cool and napping. With that being said it was still a nice place to go and visit. This non profit rehabilitation zoo appears to take good care of their animals. I would...More

This is the third time we have been here; loved it everytime. Wonderful rescued animals in natural environments and great staff. Go during the middle of the week while the kids are in school if you can to avoid crowds.

First of all, I am anti-zoo in so many ways. I hate seeing animals caged up, and kept just for our viewing pleasure. HOWEVER, the Austin zoo takes in rescue animals only! They don't go out and remove a baby from it's momma just so...More

The place was busy. Staff was courteous and efficient. They had some impressive animals. A lot of the animals were not available to see. Still a fun day.

It's hard to keep this zoo in context and not compare it to other, more commercial zoos. This is closer to being a very nice petting zoo, and for what it is, it's too expensive. I understand that the money helps save animals, so I...More

Our family went because we were in Austin. It is smaller than most zoos, but still had some good animals. It is a rescue zoo, and there was a nice collection of animals. There were bees everywhere though which was annoying. There were lions, tigers,...More

About the dogs-we have 2 tiny poodles-each under 10 pounds that would be riding in a stroller or carried in a pack much of the time. Otherwise, they walk on a very, short secure leash.Visiting from out of town. Are they allowed inside the park? (the zoo) Best regards, Pam Frederick
