The zoo is clean, we went there early, we able to see the animals bath time, wild animals awake. Not much of animals, don't expect too much. It is an ark, wear comfortable clothes. I purchased tickets online with promo of 50% off. We enjoyed the feeding time with animals, ready your pocket, php50 per stick. My son fed the... More

The place is clean and perfect for kids to explore. Just be careful of the free flying birds on the 2nd floor, particularly the Toucan. They tried to grab me! But no harm done. They immediately took care of the incident. Just funny experience, but maybe scary for the kids. Animal feeding is a great experience for kids also.

Ark Avilon Zoo is a great place to visit, if you're a family with young kids. It's conveniently located in Frontera Verde, Pasig, that is also home to Tiendesitas, for some shopping and dining (so every member of the family won't get bored!) In the zoo, they feature the country's unique wildlife creatures. Your kids will enjoy interacting with all... More

Place is just a so so but ticket was kinda high for a small space of a zoo near Tiendesitas. But kids will definitely enjoy the feeding part.(Again feeding veggie part is also pricey)

It took slightly more than an hour from MOA to this zoo. Upon reaching, it appeared that we were the only visitors. No guide to take us around but it was nice that we could explore the place freely. Very interesting zoo indeed - ground floor, you find lion, meerkat, penguin, etc. - what a mixture of varieties! On the... More

Visited with my sister, hubby and baby. We were the only visitors at that time as it was raining. I pity the big animals as they are unable to move much in the given space - the lion, leopard, bear but it is a relatively good collection for children to see these animals at close. The feeding of rabbits, goats... More

They have some very exotic animals which would be really nice for the kids to see and visit. Go to the second floor where you can actually feed the rabbits / sheep / cows and horses. The tigers and the eages are awesome! I went here to do some photo coverage for a children's birthday party (yes they have a... More

Having the "zoo" feel without the need to drive for long hours, Ark Avilon Zoo in Pasig is definitely worth a try especially for kids. The place is not so crowded which is good. There are few variety of animals compared to bigger zoos of course, but everything inside are worth anyone's attention (especially the most friendly monkey ever). A... More

Looks old but it has cute animals! I was able to hold a yellow python for the first time! I love their parrots! It keeps on showing its dancing ability to us. It was a fun day! I would love to come back again!

We have been here about 5-6 times already and we feel that it was way better a couple of years ago. Staff are still amazing as they are very friendly and patient with children. Be prepared to spend more money that you would want. Feeding the animals would cost you Php50 per food. Because you could feed donkeys, goats, pigs,... More
