Virginia Zoo in Norfolk
Went to the zoo today so my daughter could see her favorite animal in the world. The red panda. This zoo is very well laid out. The animals were fantastic. There was a vast variety of animals from all over the world. The park was clean and the animals looked very well taken care of. The staff and volunteers were very friendly and helpful. They were very quick to give information and answer any questions. They were very informative. The red pandas were cute as can be. We were visiting from Florida. I would recommend a trip to this zoo if you are in the area. It was a great day.
Great zoo with so much to offer. It has the feel of a big city zoo but you can comfortably see everything in a day. A great trip to just walk around by yourself or with the family. Pet the goats or go in the brand new reptile house, the displays and people are great.
They also have great volunteer programs for kids and adults.
It was fun, clean, and a great experience for my 3 year old. She was very excited about most of the visits and I liked that they had things she could climb on, too. She loved being able to pet and brush the goats! Only thing I would change is more bathrooms in different locations (to be fair though I’m 7 months pregnant)
Would have been a 5 star but it costs $17.50 to get in and they don't allow food or drinks so they can charge $3.00 for a bottle of water. Other than that it was spectacular and enjoy my day seeing and touching the animals. I took over 100 pics.
First time to zoo in VA... wonderful time. So much to see and explore. My family and I were there for about 4 hours or so and still feel like we didn't quite see everything. Definitely wanting to go back later in the year, when the temperature is a little cooler.
