We love our zoo here in Little Rock, it has been a favorite spot to take grandchildren on regular basis. Recently we have had the addition of some baby wolfs, they are adorable. It's a nice park with new attractions, the great apes, and cheetahs.

I really enjoyed the zoo. I finally saw the cat that I had seen when I was in Tanzania. I know know what is is. A caracal . They have a cute train that goes around the zoo and a merry-go round. The animals are well treated and have toys and things to play with. The chimpanzees, gorillas were especially... More

Not the best zoo ever but not the worst either. Plenty to see and do. I'd say it was an average experience.

Not as big as the Detroit Zoo but it has it;s own personality. If you are a zoo lover, you will like this zoo. Most of it is handicapped accessible.

We visited the zoo over Thanksgiving weekend and had a great time. We were happy to see good-sized enclosures and friendly zookeepers. Our favorite exhibits were the elephants, rhino and large cats. The primates were cool too. They do live feedings for primates and that was fun to see how the silverback gorilla acts during feeding time. They also have... More

I arrived early on a weekday and, as it was November, pretty much had the zoo to myself. I talked to two very friendly keepers, Paul and Karen, and they were very kind taking time out of their busy days to talk to me, I could tell that they really cared about the animals and that made me very happy...

Enjoy going to the zoo in Little Rock. It is big enough to have a good variety of animals but not so big you can't get through without rushing. The only downfall at the time was the construction. Hopefully that will be done soon. The zoo is clean and well maintained. The staff had some animals out at the front... More

My youngest child and I spent the day together. Food and drinks are rather pricey. Go after a big breakfast or after an early lunch so that you don't have to buy any food.
