Reid Park Zoo

Reid Park Zoo Review

This small but well-designed zoo won't tax the children's—or your—patience. There are plenty of shady places to sit, a wonderful gift shop, and a snack bar to rev you up when your energy flags. You can feed carrots to the zoo's friendly giraffes each morning at about 9:30 ($2). The new African elephants habitat and the South American section with rain forest exhibits and exotic birds are also popular. If you're visiting in summer, go early in the day when the animals are active. The park surrounding the zoo has a number of imaginative playground structures and a lake where you can feed ducks and rent paddleboats.
