Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo

Our family loves the “Little Zoo That Could” so much. I call it a grown up petting zoo because you are up close and personal with the animals. There are no hills to climb and the property takes you in one big loop around the Zoo.

“Hurricanes, tropical storms, the recession, the oil spill. We aren’t called The Little Zoo That Could for nothing. We are definitely survivors, but it’s time to move to higher ground and become The Little Zoo That Grew,” said Patti Hall, Zoo Director.

The Zoo is in the process of building a new location and you can see updates on their Facebook page.

Where else can you hold a baby kangaroo, sit with sloths, play with lemurs, or hold a baby alligator?

Plan for about 2 hours of time to walk the zoo and take your time. It is definitely worth the family visit and in 2017 others agreed. The Zoo was the highest ticketed attraction in Baldwin County and welcomed more than 175,000 visitors.

We are Annual Pass holders and go as often as we can.
