This zoo needs some serious loving. Many parts are being rebuilt and I can only hope that they maintain the new parts better than the older sections. The exhibits had a general air of being run down and neglected many too small for the occupants.. The animals did not look like they where kept engaged and for the most part... More

So sorry you were disappointed, Geatley! Audubon Zoo is definitely growing and we are right on the cusp of opening up new animal areas that we are especially excited about. I hope you'll give us another chance the next time you are in town. Thank you for reviewing us! More

I don't think this was ever a great zoo. I was there years ago and wasn't to impressed. Since then the zoo suffered great damage from Katrina. I went hoping they had recovered. They had not. Many exhibits were closed and those that weren't were disappointing. The zoo is certainly worth making a donation to but, as an attraction, it's... More

We had the best day with our grandchildren at the zoo. There is something for all ages and especially nice for toddlers who live in the city and need to be exposed to the great outdoors. A really fun water feature and new ones to come, a tiny train ride, merry-go-round and terrific animal exhibits(common and unusual). A wonderful day... More

The kids had a fabulous time at the zoo. We unfortunately went the day a huge fund raiser was going to take place, The Zoo to Do. The workers were setting up the inflatables for the children to play on for that evening. My students wanted to go play on the inflatables, and they couldn't. And they didn't understand why... More

White tiger! White alligator! We saw so many animals that we wouldn't normally have the chance to see. The zoo is huge, but we did get through it in about two hours, without running. The animals all looked pretty happy in their areas, and visitors were kept far enough away from them that they had their space. Staff was easy... More

this zoo has a ton of potential, it's very large, and has a wide variety of animals, but they seem to not be displaying many of them and or are redoing many of the area's, so I was underwhelmed, especially for the regular full price admission

So much to see & do. We were able to get up close & see so much. Beautiful areas like no place else. Restaurants not cheap but I loved they had them so worth every penny. I would return without the grandkids even.

My husband and I enjoyed the greenery and fountains in the landscaping. We thought it was a very pleasant park and zoo for the people visiting. Disappointing that both the giraffes and sea lions exhibits were closed today. A few of the animals seemed unhappy or bored (maybe just my projection), but the exhibits looked well thought out to me.... More
