Lake Superior Zoo Duluth Reviews
Small, but very charming zoo to visit Sep 26, 2015
Located in Duluth, the Lake Superior Zoo is a small zoo that has a relatively small collection. Does that mean this zoo should be skipped?
Finding the place can be a little tricky, especially since the main street is under construction and blocked off the main entrance to the parking lot. I am sure there is a way to get there by public bus, but I drove to this place. And had to cut through a residential area to get to the parking lot.
The entire zoo can be seen within an hour, as it is really small and does not have a lot of animals to see. And they are spread out on its grounds, surrounded mostly by a forest. But strangely enough, none of these are strikes against the zoo, but somehow, work in this zoo’s favor. That is because of the environment that it is located in. Put all these factors together, and you got a zoo that is really enjoyable.
The zoo is mostly surrounded by a forest, and the Kingsbury Creek flowing through the zoo, both of which, adds a lot of charm to this place. That makes walking through this place, really enjoyable, as you get from one part to another.
Also, from the main building, there is a deck overseeing the Amur tiger enclosure, where you can also see the surrounding area of the zoo. And the enclosures for the animals are well enough that they seem to do well there. And enough of a variety of animals from different parts of the world, like African lions, ringed-tailed lemurs, kangaroos, and brown bears.
The Lake Superior Zoo may not have much when compared to the more bigger and popular zoos, but it certainly knows what to do with it does have, making it a very charming zoo to visit. And proving that size does not always matter. Those who like animals and/or has kids, should definitely check this place out. So to answer my earlier question, it should not be skipped. Despite its size, I give this zoo 5 stars out of 5.
