A little history lesson about Alamogordo’s historic zoo.
Founded in 1898, the Alameda Park Zoo in Alamogordo has staked its claim as the oldest continuously operating zoo in the Southwest though some claim zoos in Dallas or Phoenix opened around the same time. One point of fact is certainly not debatable, that being there is not an older continuously operating zoo in a city the size of Alamogordo anywhere in the Southeast.
Alamogordo is fortunate to have this unique intimate offering of a well maintained facility that is of historic significance much like several of the buildings in the area of Alamogordo’s downtown district.
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.
