This is a great zoo. Easy to walk, lots of shade, lots of sun, interesting exhibits - some legacy, some new and 'themed'. Obviously there is an Egyptian theme (Memphis, duh) but it's really well done and not chintzy. The animals and exhibits are easy...More

We drove down from Nashville with friends and their children to spend the day at the zoo. The zoo is very spread out and there is quite a bit of walking, but there is much to see at the zoo. It'll probably take a family...More

When I found out that the Memphis Zoo had pandas, it was a must see for me. I LOVE PANDAS and LeLe and YaYa did not disappoint. They were worth the price of admission alone. But, besides the panda bears I found the other animals...More

There are no shuttles at the zoo, but the parking really isn't that much of a walk. The earlier you arrive, the closer you can park.
My grandaughter has a peanut allergy is there peanuts at the zoo?
