Go with or without the kids just to take a nice walk and spend some time away from Bourbon Street! The area is gorgeous.

Travel to the zoo from the French Quarter/Canal street is super easy and should just involve a streetcar from Canal to Audubon Park, then a free shuttle or short walk to the zoo itself. Unfortunately with roadworks currently in progress (July 2014) (that have been going for a year it seems) you need to get off the streetcar and take... More

We loved our day at the zoo!! We recommend it for couples and families. Very clean, staff was friendly, the Zoofari Café was a good place to eat. They offered healthy choices.

Decided to try this zoo out on the way home from Destin. Picked it over the zoo in Gulf Shores. We made the best decision!! This zoo was amazing. My kids loved it. Be ready to put a lot of walking in. There is a lot to see. It was worth every penny. It's a must see place, especially for... More

We go to zoos wherever we are, and this one tops our list. They have many endangered species, and some I have never heard of before. The grounds are very clean. Don't miss the swamp exhibit. They have two large white alligators. If you have difficulty walking far, take the zoo train. We liked it so much that we went... More

Very educational place to learn about the local environment and animals in their habitats. They are working on animal habitats around the park. But as an animal lover I feel some of the animals that were there should've been in a different kind of habitat or not there at all.

My kids love the New Orleans zoo. We always visit other zoos when we travel and always leave feeling like it isn't as good as the NO zoo! My kids really love the splash park and could spend the whole day in that area! My kids also love riding the carousel and the train. We always plan it so we... More

The zoo is easy to navigate and the animals seem well cared for although their enclosures seemed small. They were doing lots of work when we were there so some exhibits were closed.

The white alligators and the giraffes were my favorite. Only reason I gave it a four star was that hardly any of the vendors were open and it was hard to find an employee. It was really fun though.

This place is awesome. It is huge and will take you nearly a day to walk around the entire zoo. It is good for the whole family not just children. My wife and I had a great time visiting the Audubon zoo.
