“Zoo in Center Lucknow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

Lucknow zoo is situated in center Lucknow, near by HazratGunj, which is also the main market of Lucknow. The Zoo is situated in Narhi. Narhi is the place which is basically for students, all the students can easily get the rooms and food shop here easily. The zoo is in the end of narhi. The condition of zoo is not so good.

“Quaint but worth a visit for the kids”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2011

Being in the heart of city definitely makes the Lucknow zoo a hop skip and jump from any part of the city. The collection of animals is decent even though some of them may look emancipated. Some of the enclosures are primitive.. with none of the virtues of a modern animal-friendly space. The state museum within the premises is worth a visit but may take up an entire day on its own. And yes, dont forget the Toy Train especially if you have kids.

“I grew up visiting this ZOO >100 times”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2011

I love the place because I grew up living near it and went almost every year that I lived in Lucknow. In fact I remember hearing the lions roaring many a night.

Pros:
1) A green oasis in the city.
2) Lots of small attractions...play area with swings, massive bird cage, many variety of animals, etc......kids just love it there......you can easily spend a whole day, picnicing out there.
3) Train ride is one of the key attractions.
4) There is a real retired aeroplane that Indira Gandhi once travelled in.
5) It also houses the state museum.
6) Located a couple of kilometers from the main downtown area called Hazratganj.

Cons:
1) Due to insufficient funds it seems to be a bit unkept.
2) The aquarium is a huge disappointment. Don't waste your money on it.
3) Parking is a huge problem and private parking contractors prey on your helplessness.
