The place is neat and well kept and the animals are well taken care of. They keep a fine variety of well cared for exhibits. The grandchildren enjoy the zoo... More

We have taken our daughter down to the Hattiesburg Zoo the past two halloweens for Zoo Boo and it is a truly first class experience. The staff covers every square inch of the zoo with some form of decoration and makes it quite a sight to see. There are halloween themed drinks and a dance floor complete with lights that... More

We stumbled upon the Hattiesburg Zoo when driving from Gulfport, MS to Joneboro, AR and decided to stop in. It is a small zoo but provides for a pleasant way to enjoy the weather. We also took the little train ride around the park which was entertaining for an extra 2 dollars. The animals appear to be well taken care... More

This zoo surprisingly has so much to offer at a fraction of the cost other zoos cost. There is also a fabulous park just outside!

So the zoo is small but... The admission is cheap, the staff friendly, the train adorable, the bathrooms clean, the kids activities interesting, and the gift shop okay. As I didn't go there for the gift shop, it gets five stars.
