When visiting with children, you see more things and observations. It's slowed down. The grandkids spot animals and ask questions which are difficult or easy. Both are fun and educational for all.

Lagoon with pelicans & herons is coolest part. Admission price is high for what is offered. Staff are friendly & helpful if not overly knowledgeable. Overall this is a rather average zoo that is over priced.

The zoo is a great day trip. Try to do it on the cooler months of the year. The hottest times in Phoenix (June-beginning Sept.) I would stay away, temps will be over 100 degrees. The zoo can get crowded. Prices are very fair in...More
