Bring your family and friends on an adventure at the Louisiana Purchase Gardens & Zoo!

Along with wild animal habitats, we invite you to experience our Budgie Walkabout Aviary! Budgie is what they call Parakeets in Australia; here in Monroe, you can walk into the habitat and actually feed these little birds.

After you feed the parakeets, hop on for a boat cruise around the zoo, where our experts will show you the Zebra, Bison, Elk, baboons, gibbons and many other animals from around the world.

We also offer a reptile house and an immersive, hands-on insect exhibit, The Hall of Small.

Altogether we have about 400 animals of about 200 species. We also have 27 acres of landscaped grounds with many interesting plants and a walkthrough greenhouse.

The mission of the Louisiana Purchase Gardens & Zoo is to help people develop a sustainable relationship with nature. In so doing, the Zoo shall provide for the recreation and education of the people, the conservation of wildlife, and the discovery of biological knowledge.
