This is beautiful zoo and has a wonderful layout. It takes a full day to see everything and just hangout. It is a kid friendly zoo and enough places for some cool air when the high temps start getting to you.

What a great zoo, and I have been to plenty of zoos over the years. This one reminded me of Disney land with the entrance and the big gift shop. There are lots of animal shows and talks going on through the day and we particularly loved the elephant passage. This zoo has a great variety of animals, some that I had never seen before making it more exciting. All the staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and we enjoyed having lunch in the cafe, a very good selection of meal options is available. A great day out for all the family!

Located in the heart of the city, the Denver Zoo was conveniently located. It had beautiful sculptures and buildings to welcome visitors and a nice map with show and feeding times. We caught a few of the shows and while not the best I've seen, they were educational. While there is nothing overly unique to the Zoo, my kids did feel like they saw everything they wanted to see and had a wonderful day!

The Denver zoo is not a large zoo, but it had many shows and attractions throughout the day. The Elephant and Seal show are a must see.
