The Rosemond Zoo is a fun zoo. You can learn about different animals with different expos the zoo has. The zoo also does party's for kids. The zoo also has many other events throughout the year. The zoo also offers memberships people can buy annually.

It was a great experience with the kids, we had attended a company breakfast with the bunnies on Easter time. The interaction with the animals and of course the gift shop with the kids is a must. We enjoyed our time visit!

Very nice zoo and very well kept. We got through it in under 2 hrs but could have stayed longer (daughter was getting restless). Would recommend this zoo to others. We aren't zoo snobs but thought it was nice d reasonably priced too.

This was a great zoo. There were so many different animals! This would be good for all ages not just children. Go and expect to spend two hours.

First of all, due to reciprocity with our zoo card from another state, our family of two adults and two children were able to enter for a mere $10! I have paid more at much smaller zoos. If you have no other zoo card and...More
