What a great zoo! Lots of fantastic exhibits, with a very clean facility. Can’t wait for the giraffe exhibit to open!

Was really hot that day. Most animals had found any available shade trying to stay cool and could not be seen - understandable. Zoo was clean and well kept. Employees were pleasant. My wife had a slot experience which made the visit great. Good place for families. Admission was very reasonable.

While on a road trip to New Orleans, we intended to visit a couple museums in Hatttiesburg, but discovered none of them were open on Sundays (this particular Sunday happened to be Mother's Day, but they are closed each Sunday). Even the visitor's center is closed on Sundays! So, we looked at our AAA guidebook and plugged the zoo into the GPS. At least it was open and what a delight it turned out to be.

The cost is negligible, even with the train ride around the park. My wife thought the animals were very well displayed and cared for, the surroundings of each enclosure similar to their homes in the wild she wrote.

Yes, it is just a small zoo, but we were there for over 2 hours. There is a lot to see despite its size and it is well laid out. Children especially should enjoy it.

Small zoo, but very friendly staff. Perfect for an afternoon or half-day outing. My niece had a great time.

We enjoyed looking at the animals. I like the size of the zoo. You can see the entire zoo in 1-2 hours. The price is reasonable -$5 per person. The kids enjoyed the play areas and the train. They really liked the Splash Pad to cool off. We had a great time!
