Enjoy activities that allow a more in depth understanding of the animals and conservation activities, with up close animal encounters and special activities for kids, and more.

Very cute and awesome!! It’s about a mile and a half walk for the whole zoo so it’s great if you just want to get a little exercise and see some awesome animals!!

I went to Baylor for undergrad and I would visit the Cameron park zoo at least once a semester. I really miss having such a wonderful community organization that is right in my backyard with a new adventure or discovery with every visit. It's a must have stop if you are close to town, make time to spend half a day, it's worth it!

This zoo reminded me allot of The San Diego Zoo with its lush foliage and large habitats. We were able to experience the zoo at an overnight sleepover and go behind the scenes of the habitats and get up close and personal with the animals! Amazing! The staff was very informative and the grounds are kept very clean.
Hi highly recommend a visit to this zoo!

It started out as a ho-hum zoo... with very few animals... But it has really grown and is quite the place to see now..
