  • We stopped by on our way to Ruidoso NM. It’s the oldest Zoo in the state so we thought stop. It was worth the $2.50 (senior discount) for for 45 minute break from the drive.

  • We were warmly welcomed to the zoo by Becca Michael, excellent director of Education, who gave us a history of the zoo and pointed out the highlights of the various exhibits. Thank you Becca!

  • We went on a Tuesday afternoon and it wasn't busy but it definitely wasn't empty. The zoo itself takes about 20-30 mins, depending on your speed, to go through but they have a huge park and playground there which was nice. Everyone was super helpful and the price was low. Looks like they are adding on some more displays. Overall a good experience and fun way to spend part the day. We'll be back soon.
  • Great little zoo. Nice mix of animals and birds. Clean bathrooms, cute gift shop. Playground and picnic tables. No dogs allowed. Very affordable.
