Sure the zoo is great especially if you have kids. But the Audubon Park is huge and beautiful. Huge oaks with Spanish Moss, Lakes with wild ducks all well kept and relaxing.

Despite the humid weather, we enjoyed our time at the zoo. A zoo van picked us up at the street car stop for a complimentary ride to the zoo entrance. The zoo was very clean and easy to get around. The cafe was expensive, however. Not to miss!

We went here with our 12 year old daughter and her friend, thinking it was just another way to occupy the kids. So much for uninformed expectations. This is one of the premier zoos in the country, with some exhibits we haven't seen anywhere else. Highlights included feeding the giraffes by hand and watching the gorillas being fed. This zoo...

Our annual membership is one I will keep up for ever, the grand kids and my husband and I love visiting the zoo here in NOLA, the normal habitats are great, well maintained and clean grounds, the kiddies love the splash pad called the Cool Zoo, we spend several summer days there cooling off and see a bit of the...

This was a very cute zoo- lots of exhibits and interesting animals. They are doing a bunch of work on the exhibits so there was a lot of construction going on. Seems like it will be a great zoo after all is completed. There were tons of things to do, but I just didn't like how every activity was an... More

Drank some beers while talking to the knowledgeable and friendly elderly gentleman who narrates the gator feeding.

We finally took the time to visit the Zoo while we were in New Orleans. It was a very nice Zoo, lots to see. We did not have children with us, but I believe it's got a lot for kids! We had a great time!

We spent all day here with our two young children, and we had the best time! I particularly like how most exhibits, like the elephant and komodo dragon, have bronze statues of the animal depicted in front of it, so the kids can have a picture taken with it. The photos I sent home of the children playing on the... More

We went here to go to a grandsons birthday party. We were in a private area for parties and after the party we took a train tour and then let the kids run wild in the park area. Very nice for families

Let me start off by stating that August is not the best time of year to visit the zoo, way too hot for humans and animals. I understand there is a splash pad for the heat, charging extra for this to me is ridiculous if you not only have a member pass and you have already paid to get in... More
