Caldwell Zoo houses more than 3,400 animals in six distinct habitats. At this 34 ha (85 acre) site, roam around an African savanna filled with lions, zebras, elephants, and giraffes. See native animals of the Americas, such as bison, eagles, and bears from North America, and macaws, giant anteaters, and large rodents from South America. Look for the aquarium that hosts an array of fish, tortoises, and penguins from Africa, and check out the herpetarium--home to snakes, lizards, frogs, and giant tarantulas. Listen to the local parakeets, and feed the free-flying cockatiels a handful of snacks. Put Caldwell Zoo at the forefront of your travel plans using our Tyler road trip app.

  • I'm glad we decided to visit this zoo when we were near by the area. This is now one of my favorite zoo. I love the design of their layout. I can tell they put effort and tried to make it as natural environment for the animals. Almost every single zone has a small pond with birds and other animals. The area is well maintained and clean. Even though it is not a big zoo, we enjoyed it. Will come back again.
  • My wife and I took our 17 month old here today. She absolutely loved it! She really liked feeding the giraffe some very special lettuce. We will definitely be coming back! Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the bathrooms could use some extra attention...no soap in one, and in another my wife ran into a spider web. But overall a nice experience...
