El Paso Zoo reviews
We had such a fun time at the El Paso Zoo. It was very calm and relaxing. We saw all of the animals. The zoo has restaurants and stores to buy drinks and food from but it is very expensive. I paid four bucks for a small water. The exhibits were nice and the staff was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.
Growing up this zoo was much more than what It currently is I'm sure. A lot of it may feel underwheliming but it is evident that the staff is doing their best and corporate appears to be working on upgrading exhibits and the zoo itself. Fun place. Can definitely be more though.
