The Roosevelt Park Zoo is a zoo in Minot, North Dakota, the oldest zoo in North Dakota. It opened in 1921 and the first animal exhibition featured the American Bison. In 1970, the zoo was separated from the city-owned Roosevelt Park and the Greater Minot Zoological Society was created to operate the zoo, it is the oldest zoo in North Dakota.You can plan Minot trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
The zoo is open May through September. The flood of 1969 caused every bird and animal to be moved from the zoo, which led to the redesign of the zoo grounds. A foot bridge, a feline house, and a new bear den were constructed. The 2011 Souris River Flood caused the animals once again to be relocated from the zoo. Due to cleanup efforts on the grounds and buildings, the zoo did not open for the 2012 season. The Zoo re-opened on May 4 of 2013.

We had the perfect visit to this wonderful zoo. Cool day, got to see (and hear!) every animal. The animals are very well kept, and the staff are pleasant and helpful.
For a small town zoo, this place is awesome. Great exhibits and plenty of animals to see. The park is always clean and well maintained.
