Nice zoo. Good exhibits. Expensive food. Free parking. Address was not correct for GPS purposes, but easy enough to find once you locate the park it is in.

After reading reviews was a bit undecided, visit was planned so went ahead. Was overall a pleasant experience all the animals we saw were clean well fed and stimulated. The staff were friendly and informative and plentiful. The zoo was clean and cared for. Certainly didn't feel like a city zoo. Enjoyed our visit from uk .

This is a great place to take young kids- or those who are young at heart! It cost us $17 each to get into the zoo, and we saw all the typical animals. The zoo itself was clean and the layout was very simple and easy to understand. We loved the tigers especially!

Liked the park like setting and the fact that the animals are very close to you and can be seen from the front as well as back end. Most of the animals appeared young and energetic ans opposed to some zoos where they're old and lethargic.

A great time! if you love zoos and animals, check this out. A fun time for all ages. I loved the giraffes and bears. There's also a pretty big aquarium building with lots of interesting sea creatures.

The Denver Zoo is a lot larger than I had anticipated and we didn't get to see it all. They have a massive selection of different animals to see. Our favorite was the Bengal Tiger. He was very active when we went, even jumping against the viewing window and roaring at the people inside! The rain forest section was really... More

The variety of animals is amazing. There is a very large variety of Primates they are in great display areas, and their habitat appears to be similar to what they might have in nature. The gorilla display is absolutely incredible if you happen upon one that is at the windows. Great interaction. Many bird varieties too, and the elephant, rhino... More
