Beautifully landscaped with a great variety of animals. Have never seen such large rhinos, hippos, giraffes and elephants!

We like going here to visit when visiting our son at Washington University. It is free and a lot of fun for something to do when in town.

This is one of the last free zoos in America. You still need to pay for parking ($15) and there are plenty of additional places to pay for inside - but they are all optional. My daughters and I didn't spend any additional money while we were there and had a wonderful morning.

This zoo has the most amazing Penguin House! We could have spent all day there! We were disappointed about the Big Cats - for whatever reason, we were unable to view them. Nothing was posted to let us know why either. We really didn't have to wait long for anything either - we did try to go back to the Penguin House for one more quick visit in the afternoon before leaving but did find it more crowded than first thing in the morning when we arrived. It was definitely worth a trip, even though we are zoo members at home!

Very nice zoo. Really liked the artic exhibit...a nice cool place to visit in the summer heat. The zoo is well laid out. Attractions are not too far from each other.
