“largest animal collection in Idaho”

Watch the flock of threatened African Penguins, experience a wallaby mob on the move, discover the gibbons aerobatic abilities or surround yourself with sights and sounds of South American birds in the walk-through aviary. Stop by the Children's Zoo and pat a donkey, feed a lamb or just relax on a bench and enjoy the beautifully landscaped grounds. Over 400 animals, the largest collection in Idaho, call Tautphaus Park Zoo home. Of course a visit to the zoo would not be complete without a soft drink, hamburger, or corn dog from our NEW Kookaburra Kafe. The Explorer's Station gift shop offers a variety of items including T-shirts and stuffed animals that make a perfect souvenir of your visit. You can celebrate a birthday, take a fun and educational class or hold a family reunion or corporate picnic all right here at the zoo! Support the zoo by becoming a member and enjoy free admission for one year or adopt an animal  and help care for the zoo's animal collection. There's excitment, fun and adventure for everyone at the Tautphaus Park Zoo!

Though small, it is a cute little zoo. The animals are very well taken care of and the classes are fun and educational. There is a rather large park surrounding it and also a small amusement park called Funland nearby. Great for a whole day of fun!

This is the perfect little zoo to visit in the summer months! Some of the popular animals they house include snow penguins, leopards, and lions. We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Idaho Falls!

This zoo was great for my little family. I have a 1 and 3 year old boys and this was just the right size of zoo for us before they were done. We could take our time without feeling rushed. There were a few places the boys could stop and play. There was a gated area they could go in and pet goats. They got to see animals that we normally don't see, such as: bear, camels, lion, leopards, penguins, zebras, flamingos and lots of monkeys. The boys had a great time and we ate our sack lunch as we walked. I highly recommend going if you want a fun zoo experience with out feeling rushed in a big zoo to see all the animals.
