Maybe it's because I'm a local and I'm a little biased, but I do believe this probably the greatest zoo in the country. It's not all flash and glitz. The docents are very knowledgeable and helpful. Yes, the parking is expensive and yes you have to pay to get into certain "attractions" but it is still much more reasonable than other zoo parks in the country. I've been to some that charged $12 entry fees, then socked you with additional "attractions" and we were not allowed to bring our own food & drinks. Yes you can bring your own to the St. Louis Zoo.
This is one of the most respected parks in the nation, if not the world. $10 parking a $12 day pass to ALL attractions is hardly something to balk at. If the parking is killing you, take Metrolink. It only costs $2!
