It is a large Zoological Garden near Botanical Garden in Palermo Green Area but the animals are not sufficient and well kept. Some portion was closed for renovation.

I think this zoo has closed and that's a good thing. It was fairly depressing. "Habitats" for the animals were old and sad.

Zoo is closed for two years to undergo renovation to an eco parque
Nov 2017 • Couples
We read about the change the BA zoo was undergoing, but it seemed that it would be open in part during renovation.
It is fully closed as of now, and there was a helpful gentleman that told us it would reopen in 2019.
You can still walk around the perimeter and see the beautiful old world charm of the buildings from the 1800s, and you can also see the flamingoes in one of the river pools.
There is a beautiful Botanical Garden just across the square where you can see birds and exotic plants, so we were lucky to have this since the zoo was closed :)

Not a good zoo
Jan 2017 • Couples
I've been to zoos around the world and this is in the running for one of the worst, if not the worst. It was fun to see some animals roaming free that one might see caged in other zoos but that was about it. I felt very sorry for the animals with the exception of the ones made out of plaster and inexplicably kept in certain of the cages - one of the strangest things I've ever seen. Please see attached photos.

Thanks for reading. If you found this helpful I'll appreciate a thumbs up below.

waste of time and money
Mar 2017 • Solo
this used to be quiet interesting but is now in the process of being turned into an eccopark...which is of course admirable, however for now it is just a complete mess, large areas can not be accessed, many animals have been moved out and several remaining ones are out of sight...but nothing new of interest has been set up instead, so for now you can just observe a large number of bored employees sitting around doing not very much, the remaining animals being miserable and all of that for a rather exorbitant price. Complete rip off!

HORRIBLE! Worst Zoo ever visited!
Feb 2017 • Couples
Very old zoo under construction. Half of the zoo is closed, but you can see the animals over the fences. It's not that the animals need more rest (read that here), the zoo is open from Wednesday to Sunday, normal zoos never are closed and it works fine.
The workers didn't really seem to be occupied, they were sitting around in groups. Many cages were too small for the animals. Most of the time, we were seeing only one of each kind (one mandrill, one giraffe, one zebra, one hippo, one lion, one elephant...) this is not how they live: they need company. The brown bear who is not really happy in 30 degrees has not enough shadow, also the water ditch was only a few centimeter high and very dirty. We were not allowed to go near the elephant because he throws stones and mud in people's direction. We are so sad about those circumstances, about the animals. The price $250 is unreasonable.

The worse zoo we never saw
Feb 2017 • Friends
We decide to visit the zoo with my friend as I was visiting Bueno Aires.
Quiet familiar with zoo visit, this one was the worse.
You need to pay 245$ for the entrance which is expensive for the city.
Inside the park, a lot of animals are missing. Some part of the areas were even close.
When we asked the reason of closed are, one employee mentionned that the animals needed to rest so we were not able to access everywhere.
We also asked why some shelters were without animals they insured that the animals were there but maybe inside the shelter. We passed 2 in front and never saw anything.
The place is beautiful if you want to visit a nice garden or park but if you are looking for a proper zoo, please do not go there.

Sad, but supposedly trying
Jan 2017 • Couples
We hear the zoo is undergoing a refurb, but except for the closed areas we could find no evidence of things getting better. The animals look healthy enough, but their enclosures are sad and lacking. The materials which make up the enclosures make it very difficult to take photos.
