Perfect size for a morning or afternoon adventure with the whole family. Beautiful natural exhibits well organized by world region. Even a section on local area flora and fauna - nice touch!

Waco tours took us to Cameron Park. We might have missed it if not for them. Beautiful place, so glad we got to visit

The zoo is a super zoo. It is very well laid out keeping the animals in beautiful natural surroundings. The animals are well cared for. It is a lovely stroll for all with hands on and playground activities throughout. The Asian exhibit is my favorite.

What a surprise in Waco, great zoo with a huge selection of critters. We spent a couple hours walking around and had a great visit, if your in the area its a must do.

Amazing zoo, and beautiful setting... So much to see. Location just out of town, and shaded park, when the heat is so intense.

The Park is a beautiful spot for this Zoo. Natural habitat style, tree shaded and many water features. Convenient parking. Many activities planned during the year, they have a website, so check the activities for the time you will be visiting.

I really enjoyed the Zoo. For a smaller Zoo it had plenty of exhibits. Lots of beautiful fauna. The layout and paths that you take keep you from having to back track. A lot of tracks covered by the trees.

I would agree with all, 2 hours is a good amount of time. Can you walk through the whole thing in an hour, yes. But to stop and watch, play on the slides and stuff, maybe have a drink on the deck... Two hours plus. If you... More
