A very sweet zoo. Shaded and a pleasant walk. Perfect for all ages. We saw a birthday party for young child there. I recommend.

Visited this zoo with my husband on a Sunday afternoon. Admission was $5 for each of us since I'm a UF employee and he's a veteran. Patricia at the desk was very helpful and assisted with giving us directions to the parking lot since we ended up in lot 11 near the business ed buildings. Also, even if they close at 3pm, last visitors allowed entry is at 230pm. Bathrooms were clean and the zoo itself seemed well-kept. It was a colder day in the low 60s so there weren't as many animals out as when it's hotter. Lost 1 star for the reptile / herp area since it was hard to see the frogs through the dirty glass. Also one snake tank had a huge crack on the glass which was kinda concerning. Glass seems thick enough to not collapse, but still visually alarming. Employees were friendly and accommodating. Overall positive first experience for our first time visiting this place.
My son and I went here for a field trip the experience was really nice. The people who worked there students and staff were really nice. The zoo was clean and the animals were very alert and visible to view. I plan on taking my other children to visit again in the near future.
