Despite the heat index peaking above 100 degrees this zoo was well worth the stop. I'm sure the temperature spike kept most people away as the zoo was virtually empty for a summer weekday, which was great since it allowed us to zip thru the park without any wait time. The only downside was that most animals were not very... More

Zoo was very clean and had a lot to see, however it was hard at times viewing some of the animals. Paying to enter I expected more.

Nice zoo! Lots to see and do. Several places to rest and cool off. We thought the price was very good. We would like to come back when it's a little cooler and they have the new hippo exhibit done! It's easy to get to and the parking access is good too. Our son had a great time!!! We look... More

Both of my kids loved the zoo. The zoo was clean and the staff was friendly. They have a good variety of animals. It is spaced out so you do walk a lot. We will be visiting again. Would highly recommend.

We intially decided to come to the zoo for the pandas which were cute but our favourites were the budgies. Definitely worth paying the few extra dollars to feed the budgies, stingrays and giraffes. Also I've never been so close to big cats. The talks from keepers were informative and very interesting. The layout of the zoo was excellent and... More

I spent my early childhood in Memphis. The Zoo was my favorite place to go. I think it will always hold a special place in my heart. After I married and had a daughter I took her. I have always gone back through the years. There is such a great variety of animals. I love the layout of the zoo.... More

My family and I really enjoyed this zoo! The layout was superb, habits were interesting, and easy to keep the attention of three young boys! We spent 2.5 hours here, which for us is a long time! Overall, great place to visit! !!

I loved all the theming in this zoo. We came here for the Pandas. We don't have them near us this was our chance to see pandas so we made a bee line straight to their area. There area was china and they had Chinese architecture and some statues. Then we headed over to the Northwest area and it had... More

Memphis has an awesome zoo, and is constantly improving and adding on. There is a wide variety of animals to see, not just some specialties like some zoos I have been to. They have the Pandas which very few zoos in the US have. There are splash fountains and shallow pools to cool off in. And relatively new, which I... More

Always a nice place to take the family. Clean, well kept animal spaces and friendly staff. We enjoy many different kind of exhibits throughout the park. Especially the ones where the zoo keepers get a few animals out for a closer look such as birds/snakes or spiders. I've been visiting the zoo since I was a kid and my own... More
