My husband & I visited this sweet little zoo and had a great time even though we do not have kids. Loved the train ride and being able to get so close to the rescued animals of all types.

The Austin Zoo is fun... well worth seeing if you are in Austin... but the selection is small, the zoo is small, ... intended more for rescue animals than for serious zoo fans. It satisfies what it is intended for.

This is not San Diego zoo, this is not some tiny "only local animals" backyard zoo either. Coming with low expectations I was only pleasantly surprised. Most of the animals are supposedly rescue but you can find even tigers, lions, bears, monkeys, most of the...More

Spent two hours here. Nothing spectacular but the animals there were easy to view and very active. A bit of a drive from Downtown Austin but beautiful scenery on the way there. Would go back if traveling with children.
