This family-friendly outing is home to over 55 species of animals, including crowd favorites like the Touch Africa Petting Zoo, the Australian Wallaby Walkabout, and the Sloth Experience.

The 12-acre Hattiesburg Zoo is one of the most popular attractions in Hattiesburg and is reasonably priced. Note that it’s also a field trip destination for many school groups, so it can get crowded during the week.

During your visit, check out the scenic red and blue train that circles the zoo. The train is a great way to see the whole zoo without walking too much. There’s also High Ropes Adventure Course, a new addition to the Hattiesburg Zoo and is perfect for thrill-seekers. The course includes a 4-story course for children and adults.

Finally, the Splash Pad is a great way to cool off on a hot day.

We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Hattiesburg, MS!

Small but fun zoo! Great variety of animals. Includes a splash pad and a petting zoo with goats and sheep. Ropes course available for additional fee. The adult sno-cones are the best!
