I am from Orlando. So there isn't much to do here at all. I love coming to the zoo. Yes, it might get boring if you go too many times, but I love animals and seeing them in person. I would love to work here.

In fact, probably one of the smallest zoos I've ever visited. But that's okay by me. My view is that they're helping to preserve the species that they have for future generations, and educating those same future generations about the animals.

I have been taking my kids and now grandkid there for years. Nice zoo. Dont compare it to some big city zoo, because we aren't a big city. But it is a great place to spend the day with your kids.

Wonderful zoo for the size of the town. Fun-filled outdoor activity for children and adults alike. There's lots to see and the grandkids love to feed the ducks. The price is extremely family friendly.

They are very proud of being the second largest zoo in New Mexico (behind Albuquerque). Size-wise, there's no comparison. But it's a fun place, well done, and something they do have the right to be proud of. Hours are very limited (they close early, even...More

What hotels are close to Zoo?
25 April 2017|
Response from beezergal | Property representative |
Most of the hotels in Clovis are located along Mabry Drive(highway 60/84). The Hampton Inn is technically the closest at 2 long blocks away, but all of the others are close also.

The hours are 9:30 to 3:30 and closed on Monday. Everyone must be out of the park (zoo) by 5:00. There may some adjustment of hours for summer months. JT
