  • We got to see a wide variety of animals but they did let us know as we brought our ticket that all birds would be put away due to the bird flu. I wish that had discounted the ticket some cause that...

  • The coolest zoo I have been to so far. They have all sorts of animals and bus rides around the zoo. We went there a while back for Halloween and it was great. It was the best time I have had in my life. They have all of the animals in a well lit environment at night and it was boo at the zoo in 2013. Coolest zoo and I am coming back here
  • Big fan of Mesker Park Zoo. Loved it as a kid and still love it today as an adult. The penguins are a great and welcome addition. Always clean with friendly staff who work hard to keep a family friendly fun environment for all ages. For Evansville being the sleepy little river town that it is they have a very wide selection of animals and the tropical forest is a great place to do some walking. Ticket prices are fair as well. I still remember when they were using the old entrance by the old monkey exhibit with the pirate ship. Great place to have fun and get outta the house away from the TV and Xbox for a day.
