New Mexico’s Alameda Park Zoo Is One Of The Oldest Zoos In The Southwest

It just might be history that makes New Mexico so enchanting. The state is home to some of the oldest places in the country: the oldest continuously inhabited settlement, the oldest house, the oldest church. Another designation to add to that list? New Mexico is also home to one of the oldest zoos in the Southwest.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

The zoo is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed on Christmas and New Year’s. For details about special hours, admission rates, and more, be sure to visit the zoo’s website or Facebook page.
