My wife and I have been here several times. It is a small zoo but they have planned out their spaces very well to maximize what they can do. The price is more affordable than a bigger zoo too. We have started going here a couple times a year because we have such a good time.

Good place to take kid's. Enjoyable for adults as well. Very reasonable entry fee. Take a picnic and enjoy the park after your visit to the zoo.

Great zoo for the city size. Lots of animals and most are always out playing. Small petting place where you can let, brush and feed the goats. Love going here!

Every year there are more improvements. There are also plenty of picnic areas all around the zoo park area. Ballgames take place during the... More

I haven't been here for over 10 years, and really enjoyed a morning visit this summer. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They've done a nice job with the exhibits and the animals seemed well cared for. Very exciting to see my first red panda.

I make this trip once a year with my young son. It is a nice zoo for the size of the town and the geographical location. Monkeys, lion, camels, penguins, etc.

The Idaho Falls Zoo is a good place for children as well as adults to visit. We go about 1 time a year and enjoy the birds, and animals. They have made improvements over the years and we always enjoy.

The animals seem to be housed in very clean and comfortable areas. There is a nice place to picnic and a nice... More
