We went here for a day trip. Found the zoo to be very nice and not too crowded. Plenty of shade and were able to actually see animals up close and active. Would definitely recommend.

The zoo is always clean and well maintained. Nicest small zoo ever! They host a Halloween event called Zoo Boo every year and it is the best and safest way to go trick or treating with your small children.

Great zoo with lots of great animals and exhibits. Military and veterans can take a free walk through on Veteran's Day or go anytime with family and friends. It adds such a fun feel to the Waco area.

The animal habitats were all really nice and the animals were easy to observe. There was plenty of shade on a hot day. It is now one of my favorite zoos.

We didn't eat in the park either, but I would think you could go to your car and eat and then return but check with the zoo to be sure
