Amazing zoo especially for a smaller city. My family loved getting to hand feed giraffes. It is a very well done zoo and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend it if you’re in tyler.

Never would have thought a zoo this nice was in this town. We have came here numerous times. It is a nice zoo, clean, lots of animals and great to have lunch and watch the giraffes.

I wasn’t expecting such a great zoo to be in Tyler. I would highly recommend any families visiting the area to check it out.

I've grown up going to Caldwell Zoo, even on field trips as a small child and to see it grow over the years has been amazing. The people that work there are experts and very profesional. So many things to do!

I grew up in Tyler and went to the zoo faithfully for over 20 years. I've since moved away, but was in Tyler for the Thanksgiving holiday. My husband and I knew they had started charging to get in the zoo so we were expecting...More
