“Great way to spend an afternoon in Louisville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

My husband and I recently spent a long weekend in Louisville and visited the zoo. Even though it was January, the weather warmed up into the 60's which was perfect weather for walking around. Some of the restaurants, gift shops, and attractions are seasonal, so there were some things that were closed, but the African Outpost was open for lunch along with the main gift shop at the front. The zoo is very well laid out, the exhibits well-maintained, and we got to see a wide variety of animals. A very enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.

“A wing a weck (x6)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Just finished up a day at the Louisville Zoo. Humming the tune from the Lion King (title of review), enjoyed the entire day and now can't get that tune out of my head. Staff was helpful and the animals were all in good moods. I would recommend working your visit around feeding time. Reptiles were all motionless but all the other jungle animals were enjoying the sunny and 45 degree weather. Gorillas were up against the glass, Giraffes were playing and the Sea Lion was showing off. We brought our own food and drinks. Winter is a great time to see active animals but the down side is that many displays are closed, they operate with a small staff and schedules printed/ posted are changed. A very good visit.

“Small Town Zoo with Big Appeal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

While this is a smallr City Zoo as compared to other cities, the Louisville Zoo has it all. The exhibits are updated regularly to enhance your visiting experience. Halloween at the zoo is terrific
