I love this zoo! Is it a big commercial park with miles of concrete and huge pens of exotic animals? No. Does it have a mission of helping retired and debilitated animals live a somewhat comfortable life to a conclusion? Yes! The reason my wife and I support this place is not because of the wow factor but the good will this place is founded upon. It is a great place to take younger kids to expose them to wildlife in a zoo setting without traveling to another city or ponying up $20/head in admission fees. The staff is great and loves what they do; they truly care, not just care-takers.

Most amazing place! The train ride is really neat. They have an amazing little petting zoo area where you can feed the animals. They do "showings" where they feed the other bigger animals. The staff there is absolutely outstanding. They also have strollers THERE you can use for free. We cannot wait to go again!

Great little zoo with all sorts of animals! Very friendly staff and clean, organized facility. The train was a little boring, but I'm sure it's really just meant for the kiddos. I definitely recommend coming here!

I love visiting the Austin Zoo! It's definitely more rescue sanctuary than what you'd expect for a zoo, but I appreciate the work they do here. The petting zoo is always a good time.

For what it is-- a wild animal rescue operation transformed into a wild animal rescue zoo, Austin zoo is enjoyable. You can get quite close (perhaps too close?) to the animals. However, due to its transformed nature in purpose, I feel Austin zoo could do with being a little more people friendly, particularly for the price. (we got a living social deal, otherwise I'm not sure we would gone) criticisms: 1) If you don't arrive close to opening time, (we came on a Saturday) good luck parking. 2) The pathways around the exhibits are acceptable for able bodied persons, and passable if you have a jogging stroller with good tires, but I'm not sure that a person in a non motorized wheel chair could handle the terrain, and a baby in a click n go style stroller, or one with small tread less tires would be in for a very bumpy ride. 3) The displays about the animals could be more informative, and kid friendly. There's some vague organization to the whole place but the polished displays you might expect are missing. 4) The exit through the gift shop (which is the entry for persons paying by credit card) is a ridiculous hot mess.

Had a great time with the family. Great zoo for younger kids (ours are 3 and 1.5, had a blast) as park is on the smaller side and can easily be completed in a few hours. Don't have to rush to try to get through the whole thing. Food vendor trailer at sight seemed a bit sketchy, I would plan on eating before or after, but besides that a great experience.

Warm welcome when you step in. They are a rescue zoo and need donation/sponsor. The place is clean, it can be a it difficult for strollers. A lot of cages though, which would probably be better if it was open like houston zoo.

I took my 2 year old who could walk at own pace and see various animals up close in a clean environment. We will be going back soon.
