This zoo is small. Just the right size for an enjoyable outing though. The price is right and the animals are fun to watch. Next time we are in the area we plan to go back.

The Alexandria zoo ranks second in the state but it by far is the best zoo in Louisiana. It has a little of everything and the prices are unmatchable. Geaux support the Alexandria Zoo.
