  • Kids love this zoo. They also have an educational program which trains teens in the summer. Great staff.  more »
  • My daughter and I enjoyed our first visit to the zoo so much, we decided to come back and bring my husband. We've been to the Bronx Zoo many times, and spent two days at the Columbus Zoo this summer.....  more »

  • I visited the zoo twice this summer with my mom. We both had a great time viewing the animals. Our favorite without a doubt are the leopards. I'm amazed by the story of the the two Cubs. All three are such beautiful animals. The city of Bridgeport may have little to offer visitors and residents but Beardsley zoo in my book is a great attraction. The staff is very knowledgeable about the animals and will take their time to answer any questions you may have. If ever in the area you should visit it's great family fun.
  • Decent zoo. I went with my wife and nice and nephew. It's a small fun zoo it's that's decent for the cost but there's not a lot to see. A few of the attractions we wanted to see weren't available and it didn't take too long to visit the whole zoo. I wish there was more to do and it was a bit more interactive and fun for the young ones. I would recommend if you're local but not worth going out of your way for.
