Virginia Zoo in Norfolk
One of the best Zoos I have visited.... and I have seen a few. Some of the best lion views you’re going to see. The reptile enclosure is the BEST. You can see the giraffes at eye level from the elevated walkway. Great entertainment, music shows and other activities in the summer months. Engaging exhibits on conservation. Beautiful natural scenery. The only thing I would improve on is the food offerings which is mainly standard American fair but can benefit from more diverse options...Definitely worth the trip
Great zoo with lots to see and do. Never have a hard time seeing animals in their habitats. It is a great size- not too big or small. Water feature splash pad for hot summer days. We have enjoyed utilizing a membership which offers reciprocity throughout the year to other local attractions.
What a great, enjoyable experience. I absolutely love zoos and this is another great one! Great prices, clean exhibits, and wonderful and beautiful animals. This is a fantastic place for adults and children. Definitely a go!
This is one of the nicest zoos I've ever been too. The park is kept in excellent condition, the animals all seem like they have lots of room in their habitats, and there is a huge variety of animals to see. There are staff at various points that offer information on the animals and they are always eager to share that information.
Great for locals to enjoy several times a year, especially for kids. My son still enjoys the train ride across the park. I enjoy the 2 mile walk. Several special events throughout the year, shows highlight certain animal residents, able to pet goats. Recently updated reptile area is great. Been told this is a small zoo when compared to other zoos across the country. I feel like it's a good balance of community and attraction.
