  • 5 stars for the little zoo that could. There were a couple animal exhibits that were great - we got very close to the beautiful black jaguar, capybara, and fat alligators! But the other exhibits...

  • Small but great experience with animals and many interactive experiences, many at additional cost, such as train ride and carousel, and High Ropes, but some at no cost, like splash pad. Two cafes...

  • Super cute zoo! We rode the train, the carousel, and walked the zoo at a leisurely place and spent probably 2.5hrs there. It's on the smaller side but it is excellent for little kids!! Our 2yr old had plenty to do! There's lots of shaded areas too so we didn't get exhausted or too hot. They also have little two kids strollers for rent which I could see being useful to some people!
  • We always love coming to the Hattiesburg Zoo. It's always very clean and welcoming. They have the high ropes adventure course for toddlers and for the big kids/adults. They have a walk through course where you can touch the pigs and the wallabies. Lots of hands on things for kids to do like digging for diamonds, sand box, tunnels to go up in and see the prairie dogs, petting zoo. During the summer they have the splash pad and we pretty much go every weekend then just for that. They keep building on to make it bigger and better, it's truly amazing!
