I don't live in pueblo. I have been to zoos all over the United States. I love how close you can get with these exhibits. They have a peacock that walks free. They have really cool exhibits. It's super low cost compared to large zoos....More

The Pueblo Zoo is terrific. The exhibits are kept clean and current. Summer camps have been greatly enjoyed by our grandchildren. There are places to sit strategically placed throughout. Plantings are well maintained. I would recommend this to seniors, children and everyone in between.

Enjoy a visit to the Pueblos Zoo and feel renewed! Get back to nature in the midst of the city. The beautiful grounds are a shady oasis and their variety of animals outstanding and interesting. The otters and gibbons put on quite a show.

The Pueblo Zoo is awesome. Our favorites are the lions, penguins and African dogs. Great snack bar and fun events for Halloween and Christmas. Highly recommend

Not to big but just enough! Kids loved it and that is what matters. It was clean with lots of fun stuff for the kids besides the animals.

I liked the lay out of this zoo. It was very relaxing and pleasant - not overrun with tourists. There could have been a few more animals. It was pretty disappointing not to see a lot of the African animals. But we had a very...More

Well worth the admission. For such a small town this zoo was impressive. The paved paths twist and turns and allows visitors options for which direction you wish to follow. There are multiple indoor stops along the way (to see animals and cool off) as...More
