Amazing selection of animals. Every staff member we came across was so friendly and was eager to tell us about the animals. Fantastic food there too! All around great place!

On our vacation in Park City we decided to drive the half hour to visit the zoo and were more than impressed. The weather was cool and we had a few showers. This kept the crowds away but allowed the animals to be more active. The staff were all very friendly and committed to making our visit a success. All... More

After having given this place a bad review in the past, I have to admit that now I'm impressed. All of construction is over and the place looks wonderful, what an improvement. They have created more of a natural habitat for the animals where before these poor animals were stuck in a cement prison. Good job Hogle Zoo, I definitely... More

This was our second time attending the zoo. Our kids always love the zoo. But I would say I was a little disappointed that most of the attractions were not there. The polar bear was out and most of the animals were sleeping. Tiger, and Lions. We went at 11am - 4pm so maybe that was not a good time... More

What a good time! Don't miss the wild bird show. This zoo lets you bring food and drinks in. Close parking and no parking fee. The place was clean and they have a fun gift shop. Some rides available with large walking paths. We loved viewing the Giraffes, Rhino's and other animals. Take your strollers, umbrella's and friends. Tip -... More

wow, what a very nice zoo!! We thoroughly enjoyed this place, it is very clean and easy to navigate. The zoo is quite a bit larger than I expected as well with a fair assortment of animals to be seen...No, it is not the San Diego Zoo so if you go here with those expectations, you will be disappointed...we had...

I've been going to Hogle Zoo since I was a little tike and it has gotten better by leaps and bounds by the year. It is not a large zoo but most of the animals have large natural looking enclosures. Did not get to see the giraffes and zebras in their new home due to the ostriches being introduced to... More

We went to the zoo again this year and loved it - again. The favorite was the bird show - the eagles soaring in above the crowd was really neat for kids and parents. The gorilla viewing was also really neat - we were 4 ft from the gorilla - separated only by the glass. Our kids really were impressed... More

I have visited Hogle Zoo many times over the past 30 years and it just keeps getting better. The African Savanna is very nice. Well worth a visit.

I have visited many world class zoos and this one will be on my favorite list. It is very easy to get around; plenty of restrooms; places to eat or get a drink. The animal displays are well planned and the animals appear to be clean, healthy and happy. We spent nearly 3 hours and enjoyed every minute. The staff... More
