The park is beautiful. The red panda exhibit is amazing and the baby is just incredible. $8 for an adult to get in, highly recommend checking it out if you are in the mood for walking outside. Be aware that are some significant hills.

We have been having a picnic at this zoo for many years. We enjoy the pavilions then walk the zoo. It is right next to the discover center.

This is a sweet little zoo with a pretty wide range of animals for such a small place. Certainly not big enough for an entire day trip, but a fun way to spend an hour or two with the kids.

Very disappointing place. A zoo should take at least a hour to go through. These animals need moved to a bigger zoo. Glad we came down to see the Animal Adventure Park because that is an awesome place.

A nice zoo and sweet animals. The city definitely needs to upgrade the facilities or everyone will go to animal adventure. There is a big difference in the up keep of the two locations. I hope Ross Park Zoo can figure something out.

This zoo is small. One of the highlights is usually the carousel, which is presently closed for repairs. The chalk art on the walkway was fun and entertaining! Staff is very friendly! The bear was asleep. Penguins are cute! The food at the concession stand...More

Was there two years a go, and decided I would go back. Unfortunately they have even less animals that they did then. The tigers were gone, and I was unaware. Such a shame for a Zoo with historical significance.

We had a couple of hours before we needed to get on the road so we decided to take a look at this zoo. It featured a carousel in the promotional materials, but it was under renovation during our visit. Also, several of the exhibits...More
