Hillcrest Park Zoo 

(operated by the City of Clovis)

Providing Family Fun Since the 1930s

Hillcrest Park Zoo is a zoological park located within Hillcrest Park. We have been in operation since the 1930s, and in this particular location since the 1950s. Our park is located amongst the Hillcrest Splash Pad, Sunken Gardens, soccer fields and several pieces of playground equipment.

Our park provides a wholesome, educational and unique experience for both children and adults – making it perfect for a family outing. We are proud to be a favorite New Mexico attraction and offer visitors the chance to see many different wild animals including a Bengal tiger, giraffes, reptiles, primates and more.
