52-acre natural habitat zoo next to the Brazos River, which provided a nice breeze on this very warm/hot day! Unlike many zoos, there is plenty of shade for "all" plus benches to rest, trail markers for runners or walkers, and a playground with picnic area.

I was recently there with my 14 year old son and 12 year old daughter and we all thoroughly enjoyed it! It's like a mini Fort Worth zoo. It's perfectly shaded for those hot TX days. The animals were all out and healthy looking, several...More

Great place to take your classroom to enjoy a day of learning in the outdoors. The workers are great if you preset with them a person willing to be your guide and explain the exhibits. If you go online before your trip there are several...More

This zoo has been a favorite of ours for many years. It’s not so big that the little ones get worn out.

The zoo is smaller than the Fort Worth zoo but very nice and all animals were out and could easily be seen at length. We ran into one of the staff members while there and he took time with us to tell us a bit...More
