This is actually quite a depressing Zoo to visit. I've only been here one time and when I did I left with the feeling of sadness for the animals because they all look very depressed. This zoo is not very well maintained and it's not very clean.

If you're a tourist visiting Ribeiro Preto and you have your family in tow you definitely want to visit the zoo. Even if you're living in the surrounding area and you haven't visited the zoo yet you should check it out

It has a lot of potential, but the place isn't well looked after and doesn't smell good. The cages are small and animals look sad... And it doesn't look clean at all...

Spent the day here with our friend and was pleasantly surprised by amount of animals on display. There were many of species that I had never seen before and it was all free. I would recommend to any family visiting Ribeirao Preto

Small but very nice zoo. Lots of animals, easy to see and for free! Worth visiting when in Ribeirao Preto and walking distance from Pinguim!

An old forest reserve, preserved and exhuming more than 500 animals. Children love it. Old trees, a Japanese garden provide a nice relaxing time.
