The layout of the enclosures gives the illusion that the animals are all free to roam on the open plains. For the price I would rate this zoo up there with a large zoo like Ft. Worth. Worth the trip!

Very beautiful. Great variety of animals in their own surroundings. Especially love the giraffes and elephants.

Caldwell Zoo is one of the best I have ever been too. The cost of admission doesn't reflect all they offer.

This is a top rated small zoo! It has been featured in Southern Living Magazine. Recent renovations have made it even more true nature like. All ages will enjoy the animals plus the well kept and landscaped grounds. A real must if you visit Tyler.

This is a local treasure. Who would expect a neat zoo like this in a town of just under 100k people. A must see.

The giraffe feeding station & the painting elephant were the favorites of the grandkids. They also liked the reptile house especially since there was a step that allowed them a better, close-up look of the snakes, lizards, etc. Overall a wonderful experience.

Took visiting family of adults to the Caldwell Zoo. We loved it! Easy wandering pathways to all exhibits with lots of benches to sit and watch animals. The zoo has made great improvements to the animal enclosures and fencing to make viewing easier than ever!...More

This small zoo is really really good, Great for the whole family. Highlights where the African vista and the walk through Aviary where the bird will feed off your hand. Very clean and well kept throughout. Highly recommended.
