We try to go to the zoo every year and we enjoy it so much. This year it was a little crazy. It took us over an hour to get on property. I think it was due to construction causing everyone to enter in the same place instead of from multiple spots. Once we actually got in we had a blast as usual. We bought the Safari Pass for $10 per person and it got us into the Children's Zoo, on the train and carousel an in to pet the stingrays. The best $10 spent! The sea lion show and new exhibit was really neat. You have to check it out.

This Zoo is clean, fun, and expansive. The new sea lion exhibit is nice, and you can easily spend a day at the wild cats, and elephant and riverwalk areas. One of the many free, family-friendly things to do in St. Louis.

The zoo seems to be gradually replacing animal attractions with souvenir and food stands. The polar bear, which we used to enjoy, is gone. The zoo train runs close to many enclosures, and presents a disturbing noise to the visitors and probably the animals as well.

While some attractions do have a cost, there was no charge for admission. Overall, this was a very nice zoo.

The St. Louis Zoo is a real treat! The staff is friendly, the facility is clean, the animals that call this place their home are extraordinary AND this is a free zoo!!!! Great outing for families or for those who like to walk daily in a zoo surrounded by these wondrous creatures. A must see while visiting St. Louis.
