Its landscaping replicates the natural habitats of the numerous animals, some of which are endangered species. Two panda bears from China delight the crowds, and groups of gorillas separated by moats do their own share of entertaining. « less

We bought season passes. Lots of baby animals in March. Spent a lot of time watching the Lions in a large natural habitat and the watched the zoo keeper feeding an elephant in a large area. He was going from one end to the other to give the elephant exercise. We were there 2- 3 hours with our grandsons.

The family season pass is a BARGAIN. We used it a lot and my kids never seem to outgrow the zoo. They seem to be continually trying to update the zoo and add new things with the recent additions in the past few years of canary feedings, giraffe feedings, sun bears, water playground, etc. I look forward to seeing the...

The flamingos, lions, gorillas, giraffes, zebras, elephants, sun bears, and orangutans were amazing creatures and we could get up close and be awed by them. However, I was disappointed at how run down it was getting, having lived here 27 years and going every few years. Additionally, the children's section was sad. There were only goats at the petting zoo.... More

Lots of active animals and fun exhibits. The pandas are awesome! Petting zoo has goats for the kids to brush, and the staff is on top of clean up duty. The reptile house is pretty neat and a great stop in the middle of the zoo to cool off inside. The playground was fun for the littles! And the naked... More

It is not the biggest zoo we have seen but it was fun. The exhibits were nicely kept and the animals looked healthy and well cared for. I like the fact that it is laid out in a big circle and easy to walk. It was a little crowded and people with strollers blocked lanes sometimes but, most of the... More

We had a great time at the zoo! New baby pandas, lions, gorillas and lemurs! So cute! Parking was more difficult (had to park on the street) but not a bad walk! Went around the park twice. Wonderful!

I was treated to the Panda Encounter for my birthday. It was amazing! Our group totaled 5 people. We enjoyed an informative talk about pandas before having the opportunity to actually feed a panda! We were able to access a restricted area and enter the panda building. You are required to sanitize your shoes then an employee covers your shoes... More

I only gave it a 2 star because I had been to the zoo in the past and loved it (10 years ago)..however, my mom and I and my 2 year old nephew drove in from North Georgia and couldn't find one parking spot. The first lot had no signs or employees directing traffic to let us know the lot... More

We visited the zoo on an overcast day that called for rain and what a good visit it was! The animals were out and active and we had most of the zoo to ourselves! My favorite part of the zoo was the Pandas, I think we visited that exhibit three times to see those adorable babies! The exhibits were all... More

Last week I renewed my wedding vows for my 25th anniversary at the zoo. OMG the zoo staff from the organizers, catering, security and EVERYBODY else I dealt was simply AWESOME! They ALL made a dream come true for me!
