Animals and enclosures were well cared for. For a small zoo it packed in a lot. They also have events there in the evening such as beer and wine tastings. A good way to spend some time , especially with children, while on vacation.

The zoo is a great Little Rock treasure and is constantly changing. The year around events are always outstanding. Boo at the Zoo is something every child should get to see one.

I keep a membership. It is a great day trip for us. The food is really good but a little expensive, but not more so than other places like this. The animals look healthy and they aren't too far away. There are plenty of viewing areas.

There were several animals out and we were able to see them pretty well. They seemed well taken care of, although some of their enclosures seemed a little small. You have to pay for parking when you pay for admission, and the person taking our money was super rude and acted like she was irritated that we were there. We... More

We decided to take our kids out of school on Friday to come to the zoo since we were going to be in Little Rock already on Saturday. The Cafe was HORRIBLE! Took 25min for my family of 5 to get our food, then my corn dog was still cold. The service was bad.Employees were rude! We are members of... More

Don't pass up a wonderful opportunity to nnreconnect with nature. What a special place. It's clear that the zoo cares about the wide variety of creatures they house. And it's clear they extend a big welcome to and provide a meaningful experience to visitors.

It had been about 20 years since I had been to the Little Rock Zoo, and I was pleasantly surprised at how it had changed. My wife and I took our 16 month old and we had a blast. We spent about 2 hours there and could have spent more if my daughter was up to it. The animals were... More
