“Never had a bad time.”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

The Saint Louis Zoo is the best zoo I have yet to visit. Its something we consistently do throughout the year. There is always plenty to do all day long if you choose to spend that much time there. Early morning is the best time to view all the animals, especially if its a warm day. The penguin area is a favorite of my family, even though it smells terrible! Have fun, park down the street and walk a little the pay to park is a ridiculous 12$ a car or something like that now. Parking spots on the street may be hard to come by on a busy day though.

We loved the St. Louis Zoo. Although it was crowded we had no problems seeing all the animals. We would highly recommend this adventure for kids and adults.

“Wonderful place to spend the day!”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

We stopped at the zoo on our way to Indiana. We had been here before although it was over 8 years ago. We loved it! The zoo is free! Parking is $15.00. The exhibits were very nice. I think our favorite was the penguins, prairie dogs, and primates. We could have stayed and watched the penguins all day!! We were only there 3 hours, so we would definitely go again! I would recommend eating before or after though because everything was pretty expensive, with a bottle of water being $3.50. The kettle corn was awesome though. We munched on that for lunch then ate a big dinner outside the park.
