This is a must when visiting or passing through Salisbury. The Zoo(which is free) is amazing, clean and kid friendly. The play area (Ben’s Park) is also a great place to visit after the zoo.

It has a nice array of animals. Not too big where you are there all day. Nice for little kids. It was also fun for teenagers just going to look at animals.
