We loved the dinosaurs displays and of course all the animals. The river otters were just so cute and playful.

This is a family friendly,fabulous zoo with 3 different shows to watch. It is very inexpensive and you can see it all in a few hours time. This was our second visit and will not be the last !

Well, it was a HOT day but a great visit. I'll say first that we had visited the London, England zoo just four weeks previously and had been rather disappointed. This zoo was so much better and had an excellent feel to it. The splash park is outstanding but some shade, real or artificial, would be an asset. My daughter... More

This zoo has changed considerably since I was a child and has so many more attractions. Our favorite was the bird show and always the monkey house. The animals here look like they are well cared for....

Yes, it is a small zoo, but the exhibits they do have are of a high quality. We have been to a few zoos around the world , including the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.. and I would have to say this one had really well laid out exhibits. They even had zoo workers stationed at several of the exhibits... More

The zoo has been renovated recently and no longer feels like a small town zoo. There is a splash pad type area that the kids love to play in on the hot days. The memberships are a good deal when compared to admission prices.

Great zoo! Of course there are bigger and fancier zoos in many cities, but Hogle Zoo has made many improvements--African Savanna and Rocky Shores significantly--that make for a great experience! We love the polar bear!

My family and I were in Salt Lake for a medical appointment but decided to spend time sight seeing. We went in the later afternoon upon getting to SLC. We spent 2 1/2 hours there which was plenty of time to see everything. I was really impressed. I have spent time at many a zoo and this is right up... More

Over the past few years, the zoo has had many upgrades and improvements for both the animals and the visitors. It is a wonderful place to spend a day and one of the few attractions where you can bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy.(bonus). There are plenty of food and snack vendors, but it's nice to be able to... More
