Met up with friends in Salt Lake City and visited Hogle Zoo. It's a small, well kept zoo with good access to elephants, giraffes, lions, rhinos, sea lions, polar bears, various monkeys, small animals and more. It was a warm, sunny day and animal caretakers were helping make animals visable to see, feeding, etc. They had bird talk and other... More

My fiance and I went to the Hogle Zoo this past Labor Day weekend. We were both surprised by the lack of smell and the cleanliness of all the exhibits. It was as if they had replaced or cleaned ALL the glass before we got there. Also, that constant "poop" smell was not anywhere, except the small animal and reptile... More

The zoo was great. Lots of Animals were out and active. Our favorite animal the last time we went was the polar bear. He was out and swimming next to the glass and the kids loved it. They were renovating so park of the park wasn't open, that was a bummer. We were done in a couple of hours but... More

My biggest pet peeve with zoos is paying a huge admission fee and then visiting the animal enclosures and discovering that all the animals are curled up behind a rock or tree and impossible to see. That didn't happen at the Hogle Zoo. It was fairly easy to see the giraffes, lions, rhinos, elephants, zebras, sea lions, and bears. Even... More

Even though our kids are all grown up, we still like to go to the zoo! The Hogle Zoo has great exhibits, very clean, plenty of shows to keep the kids entertained, etc. Great place for the entire family!

We visit Hogle Zoo almost every year and have been impressed with all the improvements. First the elephants, then the Rocky Shores (where we have seen the polar bear, seals and sea lions, and bears every time!) and now the African Savannah. The African exhibit is a work in progress this year as they get the animals used to each... More

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
