You definitely can't beat the price of the Boise Zoo. Our family of 7 was able to go for under $40. It's definitely small and they seemed to have quite a few animals out of exhibit for one reason or another but we still feel...More

The zoo is small but really nice. I gave it a 4 just because of the size but highly recommend visiting! It's perfect for preschool and school age kids and is very community oriented. I'm so glad we have it in our community!

We took the kids for spring break and it didn't disappoint. Sadly the Tiger recently passed but we got to feed the giraffes and the Sloth Bear is a must see. They have a little bit of everything and the kids loved it.

I see the zoo almost every time I am in Boise. It is nestled in the middle of Julia Davis Park, one of the oldest in town. When its warm enough for the giraffes to come out it is always a pleasure. While small, it...More

We visited on a Thursday, in part because that is discounted entry day for everyone. On a 50degree Feb day it was fairly busy, again it was discount day. I appreciated that the zoo seems to have a real commitment to supporting worldwide conservation efforts;...More
