Great Zoo

This place is fantastic. Every time we go, we enjoy seeing all the animals. They have recently redone the parking area and it looks really good - matching the rest of the zoo.

A very nice small zoo. Great for a couple of hours. Most of the paths are shaded, so even in the heat, it was pleasant.

First visit and was very pleased. Lots of mature trees, beautiful landacaping, and exotic animals. Bring food or eat before you go. Water area is just a splash area so my kids didnt partake. Overall was happy and valuable visit.

It's a beautiful zoo. It's a little heavy on birds and the Mayan area was light on animals. If you have small children, they will enjoy the fountains. Be sure to pack their swimsuits and towels.

My 9 year old nephew was enthralled with the Zoo. We had a wonderful time strolling through the various exhibits and enjoyed a pleasant lunch in the Tropical Cafe.

We are animal lovers, and relocated from Cleveland. We always loved the Cleveland Zoo... the Palm Beach zoo, while much smaller, provides an intimate setting for the kids to learn about the animals. The tiger exhibit is great, and the trainer sessions are informative and exciting!

Well cared for animals in large enclosures. We were particularly impressed with how the landscaping of the park enhanced the enclosures and created a really naturalist environment. Lots of shady areas for visitors to sit and watch the animals. Informative and interactive talks by the keepers. Highly recommended.
