Second Largest Zoo in New Mexico

They are very proud of being the second largest zoo in New Mexico (behind Albuquerque). Size-wise, there's no comparison. But it's a fun place, well done, and something they do... read more

I've been to this zoo a few times before but its been 5+ years ago. I am SUPER impressed with all the improvements that have been made!!! The animals have a lot of room and all looked very healthy. We even saw an albino peacock! $4 adults, $2 kids--definitely worth it! Prices in the gift shop were very reasonable!!! Thumbs... More

I have been taking my kids and now grandkid there for years. Nice zoo. Dont compare it to some big city zoo, because we aren't a big city. But it is a great place to spend the day with your kids.

Sweet little zoo with fabulous animals! They're in chain link fences, but with tons of room and other animals near by to entertain them. People can get really close and animals are very interactive. They walk up to look at you and share their beautiful faces. Friendly staff, love to share. Really a gem of a zoo. And only $3.00... More

Wonderful zoo for the size of the town. Fun-filled outdoor activity for children and adults alike. There's lots to see and the grandkids love to feed the ducks. The price is extremely family friendly.

They are very proud of being the second largest zoo in New Mexico (behind Albuquerque). Size-wise, there's no comparison. But it's a fun place, well done, and something they do have the right to be proud of. Hours are very limited (they close early, even on summer week-ends, when it would make sense to entice business with the long evenings),... More

We always enjoy zoos, and Hillcrest Park Zoo was fun as well. It probably would not be considered cutting edge or world class, but the animals appeared to be well cared for and healthy.

This Zoo is one of the larger zoos and maybe the largest one for such a small city I have cam across. It has a wide range of animals in a very natural environment and ease of access for most people. The cost is good which makes going with the family good and there is plenty of parking about as... More

At the time we went there were a lot of Canadian geese there that were with their young. It was fun to watch the babies waddling along, but we kept our distance due to the protective parents. The animals were lazily relaxing as we walked around, most of the exhibits were open, but a few were closed. My favorite part... More

Small but nice little zoo. Nice variety of animals. Well maintained. Visiting my son and daughter in law and wanted to see some of this small town. They thought it was just a petting zoo. So surprised to see so many animals. Nice and quiet.
