We were zoo members for several years. We would often take my son once or twice a month. The zoo has a wonderful train and has added a carousel. There are a wide variety of animals and a wonderful reptile house. The zoo is very well maintained and the animals seem healthy, happy and well cared for. The gift shop is large and bright and contains a variety of nature themed items. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. One of the favorite times at the zoo is halloween. They host boo at the zoo and decorate with hundreds of jackolaterns and other scary things.

We recently visited the Scovill Zoo with our 3 year old and 1 year old and had a great time. The zoo was large enough to host a wide variety of animals, but small enough to not overwhelm our younger children. The facilities provided ample space for the animals to roam about in their various areas. The restrooms were clean. There were activites for preschoolers on up to participate in. And, it was so affordable! I anticipate making the drive back to Decatur for more visits to the zoo.

Scovill Zoo is a great zoo for the whole family. They offer a wide variety of animals. The zoo has a low admission fee, and one day a week has a "Free" day. The zoo sits on Lake Decatur and has some great scenery. There is a new Childrens Museum within walking distance from the zoo. It is a great place to take the kids for a day. Very clean and well kept facility. Very handicapped accessible.

This zoo, even though located in a medium sized town has a wide variety of animals. Admission fee is low both for children and adults. They have added activities throughout the year, such as Boo at the Zoo, a safe alternative to trick or treating. The zoo itself is clean and well managed and child friendly.

Scovill Zoo is a whole family experience. They have so many animals to visit. From reptiles, birds, big cats, camels, and more. They have a train, a carosel, and a great gift shop. The admission is low and the park large and clean. You can spend a whole day here.
