Good place for a cook out. Nice fun small zoo near by. Lots of ducks and turtles to feed. Good play ground with lots of cool kids.

I visited this place to see the bears, which is one of the more popular animals to visit. This place is family friendly, as it is pretty small and well maintained. The guides are pretty interactive with children, and have great knowledge on what they talk about. Don’t expect to see many types of bears, as far as I saw, there was only one type, the black bears. The two things I was dissatisfied about was the bathroom near the entrance. There needs to be more maintenance in them. The second, issue is that the keepers need to pay a little more attention to the animals’ enclosures. Some, like the otter’s had lots of garbage in its little water pond. I saw this when I visited in the Bears birthday.
Other than that, the overall experience was very pleasant. Friendly faces, lots to see and I would definitely make a second trip if I had to.

It’s good for what it is. My kids enjoy coming to see the animals. The turtle viewing area could use some cleaning and window replacement. There’s a hiking trail and a lot of area to enjoy. It’s a great park to take the family. See the animals, hike the trail, enjoy a picnic.

Nice park for quiet meditative walks and feeding the geese and turtles - lots of turtles from really small to 2 1/2 foot long snapping turtles. Next to the zoo and it has a nice enclosed fenced in wooded dog run area. Some benches but not a lot of flowering plants. More left to natural growth. Fully wheelchair accessible.

Every Athenian is required (by law) to visit the Athens Zoo aka Memorial Park at least one time within their first six months as a resident of the Classic City. Many choose to frequent more often while some get their fill with the one and done approach (not recommended), but after the visit is completed, all will find themselves to be better citizens than they were prior to visiting this historical place. Non-residents are certainly welcome anytime as well, though they do not share the same legal obligations as the local residents of Athens. Enjoy your journey through the wild world of the Athens Zoo, and always remember, don’t try to pet the bears!
