Palm Beach Zoo is a small zoo, some 550 animals, so its not Miami Zoo but my granddaughters like it. Sharon the ocelot is 23, the oldest cat there. A lot of the animals were injuried or are rescue animals.Nabalam, an matriarch jagular is 22. The animal care staff does a good job.

Abandoned 2yr old baby bears, Bald Eagles that had been shot and Albino crocodile. The area that they were living on was remarkable, it felt like we were walking through another... More

We have been visiting Palm Beach Zoo for 30+ years. While not San Diego experience; nevertheless, an excellent zoo. The folks of the Palm Beaches are to be congratulated for funding this valuable community resource.

This place is just awesome. Great for young kids as it's not too big. The layout is great, landscaping is awesome, service is friendly, and of course, the animals are awesome. My 3 year old loves it!

The Palm Beach Zoo is a wonderful place to spend time. The animals are well cared for in clean and appropriate habitats. There is a great variety of animals and the habitats are laid out in such a way that even when it's crowded you can get a good view of the animals. There are on-going talks and events. While...

Obviously the teenager wasn't to thrilled to be there but it was a family outing and he put up with that. We... More
