Park is well maintained and offers a wide range of animal exhibits. Visited with family while in the Shreveport area. Kids love it and really seemed to to enjoy the zip lines at the park. Good spot to spend an afternoon with family.

For my birthday I was feeling adventurous and this place hit the spot. My friends and I enjoyed this place so much! We got to feed all kinds of animals and get up close and personal with them. Once we saw all the animals, it was on to zip lining!!! The zip lining had 4 or 7 lines and as... More

Nice place to see gators and other animals. My kids enjoyed feeding the animals. The zip lines are pricey, but very cool. I wish that we could have learned a bit about gators. there was no info on them and i would have been a nice addition.

Thank bussed
