I've been here several times over the years. Just took a friend that was visiting from out of state. The walkways are nicely paved and there are lots of shade trees. The animals look well taken care of.

Nice assortment of animals including a cute little barn yard collection. It was very clean. Nice tree canopy kept temps reasonable on a very hot day. I think a bit pricey for what it was.

Hey, this is a really nice zoo! I’ve lived in Pueblo for about 11 years, the last nine about a mile or so from the zoo, and had never made the trip. My grandkids were visiting three weeks ago, so I thought I could take...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.
