Crossett Things to Do

    Entrance to Crossland Zoo

    by Basaic Written Feb 27, 2013

    Also of interest is the Crossland Zoo, which is quite nice for a small town zoo, and is one of the few free zoos in the country. There is a surprising variety of animals here and they appear well enough cared for, although the facilities could use some updating/improvement. There is a level, paved 2.8 mile walkway through the animal exhibits. There is also a petting zoo for the little ones and a playground.
