Just keeps getting better, 8/07/2008

Wonderful place to spend an afternoon with family and friends. The displays are wonderful and the variety of animals gets better all the time. Can't wait to see the newest addition.


Open vista, 7/05/2008

tucked inside the city of Norfolk the Zoo has spent considerable effort in creating an "open African plain" to exhibit the lions, elephants, giraffes, zebra, rhino - ostrich(?), and bongo. A vast... improvement over the segregated cages. The prairie dog exhibit is also incredibly fun!!

Decent Zoo

Norfolk Zoo is a great time for the family. The baboons will make you laugh hysterically. It has the main staple animals you would expect from a zoo, but not much more.

Great Zoo

Great Zoo for an area of this stature. We are not a HUGE city and having a zoo with these animals is a plus for our kids. IT's easy to walk the entire place without anyone getting tired and there is plenty of shaded areas along the way. Very clean grounds!

Nice little day trip

If you have a chance this is a sweet little zoo. They have the fountains at the front which is a great way to end the day if the temp. is right.

Bigger and Better than Ever

The Virginia Zoo has expanded to include more natural habitats for their animals. Walkways allow you to view animals up close and personal. A must see for any visitor to Norfolk. Admission $7 adults.
