Potter Park Zoo is a really nice zoo for its size. My kids love visiting. It's not the Detroit Zoo. It's not Binder Park. It's not supposed to be. It's a great little zoo that kids enjoy with happy, healthy animals.
Highlights are the otters, penguins, big cats (including snow leopards), lemurs, camel rides, pony rides, and petting zoo.
It's definitely worth a visit.
My family has a season pass to the zoo. Our son(18 months) loves to visit the animals and feed the llamas! Love to interact with the goats in the yard. Inexpensive and enjoyable day for the family. Love to visit the zoo. Can't wait for the Rhino exibt to reopen!
My family and I traveled 1 1/2 hours to go to what used to be a wonderful family zoo. We have never been so disapointed. The animals looked sick and neglected. The cages they kept them in were in the poorest condition. The white fox when you walk in looked like he would rather be dead than be in there one more minute. The big underwater coral reef whatever, I have seen more fish in my pond. If you are ever going to take advice; Visit another zoo....
My son went to Potter Park Zoo with his Grandma and Grandpa and when he came home to tell me how it was the first thing he told me was the "monkey was crying" (he is two years old). My mom (Grandma) said that the animals looked sad and the zoo looked neglected. Very depressing!
