We stopped at the zoo while visiting White Sands. It was small, but inexpensive and interesting. The employees were helpful and informative. There is also a playground that our son enjoyed. Great value and worth a stop!

It was ok for the fee , about 5.00 . Animals look like they are well cared for. Not sure I would visit again. But it was nice.

The animals are enjoyable to watch. The gift shop is great. The playground inside the zoo area is convenient. The new aviary is beautiful!

Pretty cool little zoo. Small but neat. The bears where out when we went, and he was curios. The Mountain Lions are huge! Fun place, and fun playground. My son loved the Iguana!

Nicely shaded and the price was right. We walked through to view all animals twice and played on the playground. We were there two hours. This place was clean and friendly. Some animals were in buildings but were mostly out second time around.

I don't think they rent wheel chairs there, but it appears to be fairly wheelchair friendly with all flat land and concrete walks. I hope this helps.
