The Broussard zoo is nice but the train is usually not working and the butterfly room seems to not be always open.. sad.

I used to go often when my children were younger. It is much better since they have landscaped. If you plan to visit often, I recommend getting a membership. Different packages available.

Such a calm place. I go there to meditate and just be in the moment. Love giraffes:)) It is not a big zoo but so cozy, and not crowded, at least when we were there :))

The visit was ok for the price. It is not an expensive entrance fee, and I wouldn't pay more than I did for the experience I had. It is a lovely walk through wooded areas in the back, but the front exhibits are quite small...More
