Small zoo. Great for the kids! You can get through the whole zoo in under 2-hours easy. We had annual passes for years when the kids were young. Fun times...

Did like the Lemur and monkey talks by the zoo keepers. Would have liked an African animals exhibit. Will likely be better once the construction is done.

Allow a few hours. As us everything in Palm Beach the vegetation and presentation are beautiful. Nice displays of animals & exhibits. The day we went it was too hot and I'd advise you to go when the weather is cooler.

Was very disappointed with this zoo ` was hoping for more animals. Not much to see - it left a lot to be desired for the admission cost.

We always find it a little sad to see animals in zoos but for some this is the only place where they may get to see these lovely creatures. Despite our misgivings we felt that the animals did look well taken care of, the zoo...More

It's ok, but needs to be updated. Do not go in the summer way too hot. The animals just sit there and do nothing, which kind of makes it boring.
