We usually go to the zoo about once a year and it is still a fun fun time. A word of advice though get there early as their parking garage fills up quickly! It is free to park so that is a plus, the tickets are on the high side but if you go to Wendy's before hand you can get a four dollar coupon each off. The zoo is still a good time with a lot to see, we spent about four hours there and saw everything.

Not sure how happy all the animals were, but I'm sure they are taken care off. Seeing african savannah animals pacing through the snow is nothing but surreal and something of a must!

I loved it and so did the kids.

spent a nice afternoon here. The zoo is a little small but expanding. Will be very nice once all the work is done. My kids 8 and 10 enjoyed it.

This is by far one of the best zoos that we have ever been to! It took nearly the entire day and we didn't even see all of it! I highly recommend any family to visit this zoo!

Last year my husband, son and I went to the Denver Zoo over the Christmas holiday. It was magical! We loved the lights and decorations, the exhibits were well kept and clean and we stayed until after dark to make sure we enjoyed all that was offered. When we became too chilly we just went into an indoor exhibit to warm up for awhile. It really added to our holiday celebration away from home.
