What a surprise! Took the entire family son, spouse, 3 grandchildren and us; got a military discount which was great. The zoo was clean, animals were well taken care of and a perfect day for the family. Noticed that you can bring a picnic lunch if you wish which would save $$$$ also an added bonus. Small train to ride... More

I've been more than a few times and it never gets old, usually an all day event. We love the train ride and the bird house but my favorite is the sky lift. And after all that, there is still the awesome playground to wear out the kids before the drive home.

Montgomery has a great zoo! They keep it clean, animals seem to be treated well. We enjoy the chairlift that hoes over a lot of animals. The train ride is also nice.. and they have paddle boats! We became zoo members! We bring a lot of company...

Was a wonderful day at the zoo. All the animals were out having a good time. Today was enrichment day. Staff decorated the enclosures with different story book classics with food hidden inside each one. Then the animals were released to have fun with their version of story time and dinner.

When my niece and nephews were younger we took them several times and they always had a good time. They have different things to see at different times of the year,

They have several different world regions on display including North America, South America, Africa, a reptile house, and many other exhibits to enjoy. They even have a Sky Lift where you can ride up over some... More

This zoo is perfect for younger children. It had a good variety of animals but not far to walk between exhibits.

We are traveling through the area and wanted an interesting stop to spend a few hours. It took us 3 hrs to amble past all the exhibits including the natural history museum. Our party included a wide age range: me, my adult daughter, my 14 yo son and 10 yo daughter. The variety of animals and being able to get... More
