Although relatively small, the Caldwell Zoo is very well laid-out, very walkable, and educational. It is especially good for young children as many of the animal enclosures are easily seen from the walkways. Especially nice are the zoo’s white tigers.

Recently completed building program. For me, the highlight was feeding giant lettuce leaves to the giraffes. The grandkids ran my butt off. They wanted to see everything. You will be surprised to see such a fine zoo in Tyler.

The layout of the enclosures gives the illusion that the animals are all free to roam on the open plains. For the price I would rate this zoo up there with a large zoo like Ft. Worth. Worth the trip!

Very beautiful. Great variety of animals in their own surroundings. Especially love the giraffes and elephants.

Caldwell Zoo is one of the best I have ever been too. The cost of admission doesn't reflect all they offer.

This is a top rated small zoo! It has been featured in Southern Living Magazine. Recent renovations have made it even more true nature like. All ages will enjoy the animals plus the well kept and landscaped grounds. A real must if you visit Tyler.

This is a local treasure. Who would expect a neat zoo like this in a town of just under 100k people. A must see.
