Great in Spring and Fall

We have been members of the Zoo for several years and it is a great place to take you family if you looking for someting outside the FQ.

Always enjoy going to the zoo, and I have been to this one a few times. This time there were at least 3 bigger exhibits closed for upgrades. Which stinks but is understandable. We will go again

I have been to several different zoos - this one was on the small side, but still nice. We spent just about 1 hour here and were able to see all of the open exhibits. The pathways are nice and many of the exhibits were nice; others were shabby or small though. They were doing a lot of construction while... More

The zoo was undergoing a make over when we went so alot of the exhibits were down for re-vamping. I have a 3 year old and the zoo is a little big for him. He complained about his feet hurting before we were finished!

I have a family of 5 and we purchased the yearly pass for $175 dollars. We have used it more than once which its already paid for itself. The kids loved it there, lots of animals and attractions to see. We went during the "winter" time so it was quiet and not very crowded. Free parking. Gift shop wasnt too... More

My husband and I spent a Sunday here and the zoo is beautiful. Price wise I did find it to be less expensive than our zoo back home near Chicago. The zoo was clean and the exhibits were done very well. I was amazed at how close you seem to be to the animals.

Somehow without a huge animal collection, this zoo provides a superlative experience. It feels interactive 'tho it's not. It feels like a very large environment but is easily walkable (even for this cane using visitor). Each geographic area is well staged. We just had a great time.

Not only one of the cutest zoos I`ve been (And home of a legendary daquiris) but also the place in which you can find an simple bur positively surprising dinosaurs experience for only 4 dollars more. Totally recommended!

A trip to the zoo is totally worth adding to your New Orleans itinerary. There's lots to interest everyone and the grounds are well-kept. Surprisingly? The chicken fingers at the little cafe are the freaking best chicken fingers I've ever had before in my life. A tip: If you arrive by streetcar, the place you're supposed to get off is... More

This zoo is the best zoo around. I live in Pensacola, Florida, and would gladly drive the few hours anytime my family is headed to the zoo. It's definitely one of the top zoos in the country!
