About the Zoo

Cameron Park Zoo rests on 52 acres adjacent to the Brazos River in Waco, Texas.  Lush native vegetation surrounds splashing waterfalls, a picturesque lake and ponds.  And in the midst of all this beauty, visitors see that the wild ones not only survive in their natural habitat, they flourish.

As an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA), Cameron Park Zoo upholds exceptional standards for animal care and management.  The animal care staff devotes a tremendous amount of time and energy toward providing the best of care, including training, proper nutrition, veterinary care, and life enrichment.

With natural habitats and close-up encounters, the animal collection housed at Cameron Park Zoo includes more than 1,731 animals, representing 300 species.  In August of 2009, Cameron Park Zoo opened the Asian Forest, featuring critically endangered Orangutans, Sumatran tigers, and Komodo Dragons.

Cameron Park Zoo is open daily except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.  For more information call 254-750-8400.
