This has to be one of the worst zoos I've seen period I would never bought in 2017 a zoo like that would be allowed to keep its doors open due to the inappropriate and horrendous and closures these animals are forced to stay in....More

We visited with our two small children. We had nice picnic in the park and then strolled through the zoo. The zoo is small and not very fancy but my two year old loved it. We were disappointed the train wasn't working.

Parts of this zoo are sad and depressing, while other attractions are spacious and well maintained. The zoo is free and it offers a good variety of animals. There is also a playground within the grounds.

Many animals eg bears and mountain lions are kept in very tiny spaces. They can only take few steps in any direction. Their pools are full of algae. They shows sign of mental distress and frustration. It is really awful.

This zoo is in Roswell. It is easy to get to. It is free to everyone. The animals are in clean cages and seem to be well cared for. It is not large and is an easy walk but also looks to be wheel chair...More

Altho small in comparison to big city zoos, it is very nice & enjoyable. One day at the zoo with my sister the female buffalo brought her "baby" over to us.

This place is gem of a place. So many cute animals, open free to the public. We took our group and were really impressed by how well the animals appeared to be cared for. I saw a badger up close. Thank you Roswell!

Unfortunately not, but it's a relatively small zoo.
