I’ve been going to the Salisbury Zoo for over 40 years. It’s a great zoo with a variety of animals. It’s a nice walk and not too far for ones that can’t walk too far. The atmosphere is wonderful.

This is a small local zoo. Staff are wonderful. I wouldn't travel far to go here, but if you live nearby it's a nice place to bring the kids to stroll around. It took us about 1 1/2 hours to walk the whole zoo. There...More
