Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo

Located in the coastal town of Gulf Shores, world-renowned for its beautiful white-sand beaches, the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo is one of the most popular family attractions in the region. Also known as the “Little Zoo” for its starring role in the 2006 hit documentary series, The Little Zoo That Could on Animal Planet, this non-profit zoological park is not just a little community zoo; it’s home to over 199 species, 31 sub-species, and haven to 8 endangered species.

Spread out over seven and a half acres with wide pathways, yet providing close-up views of our exhibits, the zoo also has shaded picnic areas, rest stops and benches, a seasonal concession stand, and a gift shop filled with awesome animal-themed “merch”. We are ideally suited for all ages and levels of mobility, from moms pushing strollers to seniors leisurely strolling. We are also disability accessible and provide free parking!
