This is an excellent zoo for a city the size of Tyler. It is very clean, well maintained, and a great place to take the family.

I have always loved this zoo. It is beautiful and wonderfully kept. I feel it may be a little pricey, but if you go often, you can buy a membership. One of my favorite places to go in Tyler.

This zoo is beautiful. Tall pine trees, beautiful flowers, and amazing animals, including a large anteater and white tigers.

Great day at the zoo with our grandchildren. They had a blast! We pack a bag with snacks and drinks. As long as you do not bring glass they let you bring bags into the zoo.
