Not the best zoo ever but not the worst either. Plenty to see and do. I'd say it was an average experience.

Not as big as the Detroit Zoo but it has it;s own personality. If you are a zoo lover, you will like this zoo. Most of it is handicapped accessible.

We visited the zoo over Thanksgiving weekend and had a great time. We were happy to see good-sized enclosures and friendly zookeepers. Our favorite exhibits were the elephants, rhino and large cats. The primates were cool too. They do live feedings for primates and that was fun to see how the silverback gorilla acts during feeding time. They also have... More

I arrived early on a weekday and, as it was November, pretty much had the zoo to myself. I talked to two very friendly keepers, Paul and Karen, and they were very kind taking time out of their busy days to talk to me, I could tell that they really cared about the animals and that made me very happy...

Enjoy going to the zoo in Little Rock. It is big enough to have a good variety of animals but not so big you can't get through without rushing. The only downfall at the time was the construction. Hopefully that will be done soon. The zoo is clean and well maintained. The staff had some animals out at the front... More

My youngest child and I spent the day together. Food and drinks are rather pricey. Go after a big breakfast or after an early lunch so that you don't have to buy any food.

The Little Rock Zoo is Arkansas's largest zoo, and while it does not reach the scale of the large zoos around the country it does offer a fine family experience. You can easily spend half a day here. While the exhibits are somewhat older, they are well maintained and quite clean. There is not the pervasive "smells like a zoo"... More

The Little Rock Zoo is a small zoo, but it has some very good exhibits. The primate exhibit is very good, and I really like the giraffe exhibit. There have been some recent closures, but the zoo has been working hard to update and has brought in some new animals. It isn't as good as Omaha or Ft. Worth, but... More
