I give it a very good, because even though it was a hot day for early in the season and several parts of the Zoo/Park were closed. I could tell that it would be a nice retreat for the family once everything opened.

If I could give less than one star I would! The cages for the large animals and raptors are TOO SMALL. It looks like they threw the animals in any free cage they could. It doesn’t work. The raptors don’t have any room to fly....More

A cross between a small zoo and family park. Seems to be the spot where families go on the weekends. 50 cents per person to ride the little train or 100 yr old Merry-go-round. Some of the animal areas were a little sad, but they...More

This Zoo doesn't have a HUGE amount of stuff to see, but it was worth the visit. It is free and never really busy. I came here a few times in our month long stay just out of its easy access - it was right...More

Enjoyed the afternoon here. Where else can you ride the merry go round for a quarter? Awesome park and picnic spot./

Grew up here, love the zoo. People take for granted that it's free. Animals are loved. Love the Christmas light thing they recently started. Grass isn't great, but then again it is Roswell. Water fountains need maintenance

Awesome park with lots of animals to see. You are able to get VERY CLOSE to all the animals, which for my 8 month old daughter, was a HUGE victory. Highly recommend!

This zoo was very nice, clean, and the kids there this day seemed to really enjoy it. The animals were adorable and I would recommend going just for the simple fact that it's free, the staff was very friendly.
