It is a nice zoo but a little spread out. With the construction, we ended up walking a long way around some exhibits in the heat to find things. More trees along the paths to provide shade would be wonderful.

Spent pretty much the full day at the zoo and loved just about all of it. Polar bears are my favorite, so we went to see them early and then went back for the keeper chat at 2. The sea lion show was fantastic. Misting fans throughout the facility are appreciated. Only real complaint is that most of the food... More

What a wonderful zoo! Memphis is so lucky to have a zoo like this! We live a state away and will be making the trip back for the zoo alone. It's so well thought out and clean! We really enjoyed the pandas and feeding the giraffes. Lots of wonderful memories made here!

The layout of the zoo is great. Different themes are represented by animals and decorations of that area. I've never been to a zoo that had pandas before, that was a bonus. Overall a great place to visit.

Loved the themes of the zoo - Chinese garden, Egyptian/Mayan buildings. Very best and favorite part was the $4 opportunity to pet and feed the stingray!!! Loved it.

This may be the best zoo I have ever been to as an adult. It is well laid out, and loved the settings for each section. The animals are very close up!

visited memphis zoo with kids and family. it offers a variety of animals starting from wild cats to african elephants. The zoo also has Pandas gifted by Chinese government. Lot of fun activities by kids. Weather was bit hot so that was a slight disadvantage, otherwise ìts a neat a clean place overall.

I am a native of Memphis. I moved over 25 years ago and have always told my grand children about the Memphis zoo. We now live in MN. The zoo here is not as exciting as the Memphis zoo. The kids was so excited to see real elephants and rhinos and hippos up close and an array of other tropical... More
