There are some events during the holidays. The trails of Africa were great!! The kids will love this place.

Several years ago the Birmingham zoo was not that great and it lacked much. I visited the zoo for the first time since the zoo finished remodeling and the improvements were just what the place needed. The trails of Africa exhibit was awesome!! We even got to see elephants fight. The lorikeet enclosure is not to be missed!! You enter a screened room and for a few dollars you can get a cup of nectar and the birds will land all over you. The zoo is very clean and well kept. There is a good variety of animals there. I do recommend visiting on a cooler day so that the animals will be more active and also not too hot for you. Make sure to allow most of a day to see the zoo. The worst thing is that drinks and snacks are really too expensive.

Was really interesting. It is not big, but was good walking there on saturday afternoon. Costed 14$ plus 3$ for giraffe feeding that surely recommend - nice expirience and entertaining. It is allowed during one hour from 2pm.
Beside that there were elephants, lion, tiger, monkeys , cats and others.

The zoo is small and clean. The staff was great and they have a lot of hands on things todo. The botanical gardens is right across the street too.

This is a pretty small zoo. It is clean though. They don't have very many animals. This zoo is definitely just a one time visit kind of place. It is not nearly as nice as the memphis zoo.
