Excellent layout of the zoo. Really enjoyed their primate collection, and their birds as well. Newer elephant exhibit is fantastic in design and functionality. Zoo has many species not found in many other zoos i have visited. And they appear to be well taken care of

I only went there at night during their Denver Zoo Lights show in December, the entire zoo was decorated in decorative lights made out of animals, trees, and different Christmas scenes. Also there were stations selling hot chocolate and goodies. The employees were polite and helpful and the cost to attend was only $10

We visited on a cool day and almost every animal was out and about. Wish at least one restaurant had true inside seating.

We have been long-time members of the zoo! This past year we have visited several times. The new Toyota Passage is incredible to see! We were sorry about the passing of Mimi the Elephant! Perhaps the most wonderful part of this zoo is the efforts that have been made and are currently being made to provide a natural habit for the exhibits to live in. This really brings the exhibits to life!

Denver did a great job with limited space. The animals are taken care of and seem to be quite a bit of thought put into their habitats. You can bring in limited items for snacks and such. This makes eating there a bit expensive, but I am ok with that as long as the proceeds go to the animals.
