Visit Cameron Park Zoo
Open seven days a week, Cameron Park Zoo is one of the best Waco attractions to see while you’re in town. Take a shady stroll through spectacular exhibits like the bald eagle habitat; the South American exhibit with its capybara, squirrel monkeys, and king vultures; and the African savannah, where the giraffes, elephants, a rhinoceros roam. Cougars, black bears, and river otters hang out at the Piney Woods exhibit, while the Brazos at Night barn houses owls, bats, and other nocturnal critters. Special events are held often, including kid-centric Summer Adventure Camps and the annual zip-line, bounce house, and face painting party known as KidZoobilee.
