This is a great place to take young children who aren't inclined to spend the day socializing with zebras, small mammals, nice variety of birds and grassy spaces between exhibits. There are many trees for shade, and in summer there is an additional attraction of...More

We took our grandkids and while it is a small zoo I enjoyed it. Just big enough and it looks like they are doing improvements. It was really nice watching lion cubs play with their mother. Loved the painted dogs. Will be back.

I love this Zoo! Small enough to take your little kids and let them run without getting hurt. Nice and flat, wide open grassy areas, and nice wide walkways that are great for wheel chairs. Beautiful grounds, great for parties, especially in the fall when...More

The pueblo zoo is always a fun trip we make with our kids. They have very cheap pricing and a wonderful gift shop. It's fairly easy to find and isn't over whelmingly busy at times.

I don't live in pueblo. I have been to zoos all over the United States. I love how close you can get with these exhibits. They have a peacock that walks free. They have really cool exhibits. It's super low cost compared to large zoos....More

The Pueblo Zoo is terrific. The exhibits are kept clean and current. Summer camps have been greatly enjoyed by our grandchildren. There are places to sit strategically placed throughout. Plantings are well maintained. I would recommend this to seniors, children and everyone in between.

Enjoy a visit to the Pueblos Zoo and feel renewed! Get back to nature in the midst of the city. The beautiful grounds are a shady oasis and their variety of animals outstanding and interesting. The otters and gibbons put on quite a show.

Thanks for the question. They allow service pets. However, as they can't predict the behavior of untrained non-service pets nor the reaction of the resident animals, they do not allow non-service pets. It is also a safety... More
