Pros Parking was free and easily found. Gift shop was large. Was not overly priced to get In zoo. Cons Train ride was a waste of time. Saw three animals. You will stand in line longer than the ride. Ride is maybe 5 mins. Does not even cover an 1/8 th of the park. They need to make it so... More

We have seen many parks, but this is one of the best. Apart from many exhibits, we saw enough space in the enclosure for the animals which I consider very important. Animals were looking healthy and active. There is an admission fees of USD17.5 per person which I feel is value for the money. Timing is 9 am to 6... More

The zoo has undergone constant changes in the last several years and if you haven't been there lately, you'll be amazed. This is not the zoo you grew up with. We have a zoo membership, which is a great way to go, if you're local. It can save you money, even if you only go twice a year. Anyway, the... More

It was nice to see that changes have been made to this zoo. It makes it more exciting when you are a local and you like to visit every couple of years. Grounds are kept very clean and workers were friendly. Exhibits were all accessible to any age and whether you are in a stroller or a wheelchair. Prices were... More

Went with my family and we all had a good time. Still can't believe that this zoo is tucked away in such a small corner of the city. It's getting better every time we go.

The Hogle Zoo is fantastic. We have traveled to many zoos in the western states and this is by far our favorite. It has great exhibits, a wide variety of animals, and is the cleanest zoo I've ever been to. We have visited the Hogle Zoo once a year over the past 8 years...we've never had a bad experience and...

I love to visit the zoo. It's a great place to relax and see things you normally don't have the opportunity to see.

My major complaint is that the zoo opens at 9, but not all of the services are open. My son wanted to ride the carousel, the gal stationed there had it on and he was in love. We went over to get on, but she told me that until the cashier opened, she couldn't open. So we decided to go... More

I've been going to this zoo since the 1960's. It has been changing and improving ever since then. It's a great zoo. Not too big or too small. You can see a lot of animals in a reasonable amount of time. They had a big portion closed the last time we were there, so we can't wait to go back... More
