This is such a great zoo! There are a variety of animals and the little lion cub is precious! You're able to get close to the animals and see how they live. I love how the peacocks walk around on their own!

This ZOO has it all, young and old will enjoy this small zoo with many animals. Since it is located in City Park you can picnic while your children can run and play. Afterwards you can walk to the kiddie rides and watch the children ride rides or the family can ride the train around a section of the park.... More

This zoo is just the right size and not over crowded so you can linger and enjoy the animals. It's also fair priced.

This is a family favorite for us! We travel from the Kiowa (Colorado) area many times a year, JUST to visit this amazing zoo. We're also big fans of the Denver and Cheyenne Mountain Zoos, but, visiting the Pueblo Zoo is always SO much more enjoyable, because you never have to fight your way to see an exhibit. Its quiet,...

I am amazed that this little city can support this fabulous zoo! The architecture is historic and quite attractive, and there is a great variety of animals. The otters are particularly fun to watch, but every time we go, we notice something different or interesting. (Lions playing, penguins being fed, baby animals, rattling rattlesnake, escaping turtle... to name a few.)

Took my grandson and we had a great time. If you are planning on going more than a couple of times get the summer pass as each visit is a bit pricey.

This is a smaller zoo than Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, but just as attractive with a nice variety of animals to see. It's a zoo that I consider special. Children of all ages will find this a nice respite from a busy day or vacation. It is clean and reasonably priced.

We visited the Pueblo Zoo on October 13, 2016. We have a reciprocal membership so, it was half price admission for us. It was a cool, overcast day when we visited, so there wasn't many visitors, other than school kids on a field trip. The zoo is smaller, but very nice. We liked the red panda exhibits and the lion...

Zoo is smaller, but a nice variety of animals. Penguins to lions, a farm animal area. A fancy building with displays, hyacinth macaws, snakes, and even meerkats. Zoo has picnic areas too and a little zoo shop. Plenty to see for an afternoon. Reasonable admission and plenty parking too.
