I love animals. SO much. This makes it kind of hard for me to enjoy zoos though, because I know these habitats are not the best. I wish STL would get rid of the Elephant habitat and send their elephants to a sanctuary. Out of all of the zoos I have visited across america though, this has been my favorite. I think they do a decent job with the animals, the park is clean, and even on very busy days you still have lots to do there! It is also very pretty!

We went here on July 4th weekend. They had big cooling fans for us and the children to play in. We got here right when they opened and it was still cool so we saw some of the animals before they went to hide out of the heat of the day. They have alot of animals and the Zoo is clean. We paid to park, but there is some free parking on the street if you want to find it.

We enjoy the zoo every time we come. At this time of year, it’s easy to find free parking on the street. In the summer, we use the pay lot, but either way, the zoo admission is FREE. Not many places where you can see a whole-class zoo for free. The zoo is clean and well maintained and worth a visit.

Very nice zoo, spent 5 hours or so there and still didn't see everything. The zoo itself is free to get in but if you park in their parking lot it's a spendy but not bad considering you don't have to pay admission into the zoo. We had a good time & was filled with laughter. Lots of different animals to see & my son loved the bug building.

This was the first big zoo I ever visited. I think it is amazing to have do many species together. I highly recommend if you go to St. Louis, you have to visit the zoo.
