Open year-round, the Pueblo Zoo is located in City Park in Pueblo, Colorado. Visitors, including those using strollers or wheelchairs, enjoy an easy stroll through beautifully landscaped grounds that lead to Serengeti Safari, North American Grasslands, the Australian Outback, World of Color, and an Asian Adventure. In the Ecocenter, explore a tropical rain forest, discover naked mole rats in their underground world, and watch penguins “fly” underwater. Islands of Life invites you on a shipwreck journey to habitats around the world. Enjoy northern river otters swimming and frolicking or visit the Pioneer Ranch where kids of all ages can get up close to farm animals. Home to more than 420 animals of 140 species, the Zoo is managed by the Pueblo Zoological Society and accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA).
This is a smaller zoo but very nicely done. The petting zoo area for kids was really nice even for adults! I would say get there early as soon as it opens because we pretty much had the zoo to ourselves however they were still cleaning enclosures and letting animals out at that time. It reminded me of a park with all the open park like areas. The baby lion was adorable and the gift shop offered painted paw prints of some of the animals which was really cool. However the guy at the front didn't seem to know much about the gift shop items or anything about the paintings when we asked questions.
