    It was during the heat wave so the park closed early, but it was small enough for us to see all the animals that were out in about 2 hours.

    Animals at Reid Park Zoo tend to be most active-and the crowds smallest-in the morning & shortly before closing. While here don’t miss a camel ride or giraffe encounter for the ultimate meet-and-greet

    Do not support Zoos. They are taken from their natural habitat and placed behind bars, a prison, for human entertainment.

    Everything! I was there even when it was really hot (110) and most of the animals were still very active! When it was too hot for me I went to the learning center and enjoyed the animals there

    On the small side, but good variety of animals. They take good care of them here and the animals seem happy. Giraffe feeding is fun. The otters are always out playing, they're my favorite part!

    The zoo is always a hit with children. Thanks to the new Elephant expansion, the zoo feel bigger. There are a lot more hands-on activities for children.

    They usually feed the giraffes around 10am. That's my kids' favorite part! The mini splash pad is load of fun during hot summer days!

    The animals are wonderful. Feeding giraffes is cool. Elephants are awesome. Food at the Zoofari Market is very kid-centric (at best).

    Did you know? The Zoo was founded in 1965 with a collection of birds, prairie dogs, farm animals, and a few squirrel monkeys. Today it is home to hundreds of exotic animals from several continents.

    Not impressed with ZooLights Event. They closed off half the zoo. I came here for Photo opportunities. If you have kids I imagine this would be much more eventful.

    Definitely go first thing in the morning because the animals are out and more playful. Its a great place to go for play dates and to get the kids outside. You can go through it fast or take your tim

    Nice little city zoo. A childhood favorite. They have a train (tram) outside the entrance that runs through the park and a water play feature inside the zoo. Polar bears are my favorite.

    Go early in the morning, when they first open! Animals are a lot funner to be around when it's cooler! Feed the giraffes at 10 am! Read more

    Fun during the day but do not trust events. Went to Family Fun Night. Advertised crafts - got paper and crayons. Games was $3.00 kids toy. Advertised a movie that never happened. This was a scam.
