Been to many zoos but hands down this is the best zoo I have been to. Lots of space for the animals to roam and be themselves. Good way to get steps in if you are counting them. Lions, tigers, & elephants on my.

went to Boo in the Zoo and it was a let down. The haunted hayride was neither haunted or a real ride. Boring. Hope they do better next Halloween for my 5, 7, and 11 year olds.

Every year the Zoo continues to improve the animal habitats and grounds. We are members and have been for 9 years, from the seasonal activities from the day to day the zoo is only getting better each year.

The Birmingham Zoo has come so far over these past few years. While I thought I would not like the ponds being removed the open 'picnic' fields are really nice. I love the wide walkways. If you missed Boo at the Zoo then set your sites on Christmas Zoo Lights!
