There were three major exhibits down, so no elephants, orangutans or sea lions. I also find the exhibits have in many cases only one hidden animal. Signs are not very clear, and the park is hard to negotiate. Bottom on my list of zoos I have visited.

This is a great zoo wth very well planned exhibits that closely approximate natural habitats so that when you move between zone you feel transported to that place. wish there had been more food options, I found he menus very limiting. Also the trains need to be more frequent.

My family had been coming here for years! They keep adding on to this zoo! It now has a water area that is open in the summer to cool off & they added a lazy river this year.

Audubon Zoo, New Orleans, LA - a great place to visit with family. Beautiful park, lots of interesting animals and places to grab a bite or feed animals at the petting zoo.

My family and I have visited this zoo many times and will keep coming back. The place has a great open feel and it never seems crowded. Summer months are tough as it is hot and you dodge rain showers, and sleeping animals but it's worth the trip anytime.

I grew up blocks from this park/zoo 65 years ago. Then it was a small collection of gaged animals. Now the open concept zoo now the animals walking on real grass and dirt in wide enclosures. This zoo and the other Audubon Institute attractions in the greater NOLA area are a must see for visitors and locals alike.

I was very impressed with the Audubon Zoo. It was extremely large and while my husband and I visited in August (it was sweltering!), the heat didn't deter us from walking around for hours. This zoo had a great collection of different species of animals -- from giraffes, to albino alligators. The baby alligators were so cute. There was even... More

Our family loves this zoo. Don't miss the albino gators. The water splash pad is great on a hot summer day. We often ride the trolley (street car) just for additional fun factor. Hope it is back in full service soon! The eatery at the Cajun area has great food at a great value. We do not visit the zoo... More

We had to visit this on a 100 degree day of all days. Many of the animals were not in normal enclosures due to the safety of the animals (I give the zoo an A+ for this). This made for some disappointment for my child. The zoo is on beautiful grounds. However, you have to do a ton of walking... More
